Australian Racing: Cascadian kicks off Autumn in Orr Stakes

Cascadian is set to put his All-Star Mile credentials on the line as he tackles the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes first-up at Caulfield.

The six-year-old gelding has not been seen since his second place effort in the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes in November and is rated as a 20/1 chance to land the 1400-metre contest.

Caulfield opition taken over Randwick

The James Cummings-trained son of New Approach has been sent south for the 1400-metre Group 1 event after being scratched from the Group 2 Apollo Stakes at Randwick.

Cascadian has drawn barrier one, with Damien Oliver set to take the ride and Cummings is hoping to see a good performance from the gelding, ahead of a potentially lucrative preparation.

"We're delighted with the way the horse is going," Cummings said. "I actually feel like we've got him quite forward and he looks like getting a sweet run from that inner draw at Caulfield.

"We've been delighted by the way he's been training, so much so that he could run a very promising race first-up and that would be good to see for the sake of laying a good platform for the rest of his preparation."

Options aplenty for Cummings

Should Cascadian not make the final field for the All-Star Mile, there are plenty of options available for Cummings and the Godolphin team.

Cascadian has been entered for the Group 1 Australian Cup at Flemington on March 12th, the Group 1 Doncaster Mile, which he won last year, and the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes on April 9th.
