Cav rues Wodonga bad luck as Pedro retires

WODONGA Gold Cup day is fast proving to be a nightmare for Albury trainer Brett Cavanough.

Sadly for Cavanough, talented gelding Prince Pedro has run his last race after he was found to be bleeding from both nostrils for the second time after finishing sixth in yesterday’s cup.

Only 12 months ago the Cavanough-trained Scatcat failed to finish in the Wodonga feature when jockey Jake Duffy eased the galloper out of the race at the top of the home straight.

“I’ll just head back over the Border with my tail between my legs for the second year in a row,” Cavanough said.

“It’s disappointing because Jake (Duffy) said he felt he was a winning chance turning for home and then the bleeding attack must have happened.

“He was a talented galloper who went through the grades quickly and had his fair share of ability.

“But unfortunately he is a bleeder, which is just a statistic of racing.”
