Dunaden Horse Information

Written off by many as a Melbourne Cup outsider before arriving in Australia in 2011, the French-bred Dunaden is now a name etched in Australian racing history. After winning traditional Melbourne Cup lead-up race the Geelong Cup, Dunaden claimed the ‘race that stops a nation’ ahead of fellow international raider Red Cadeaux.

The seven-year-old entire started his racing career in Germany in 2008 but it wasn’t until he was out to 2100m before he won a maiden six months later in May 2009. A switch to French racing under the care of Mikel Delzangles still took until November 2009 before he again greeted the judge in first place.

Interestingly, he was well beaten at his final start in France before arriving in Australia in 2011. He finished behind 2011 Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) contender Jukebox Jury in the 2011 Group 2 Prix Kergorlay (3000m).

Prior to arriving in Australia for his 2011 Melbourne Cup campaign, Dunaden was backed with Australian bookies at cricket score odds. While punters won’t get the luxury of such big odds in 2012, it is likely they will again get a chance to see Dunaden who is set to come to Australia to defend his title.

Connections of the dual Group 1 winner have also hinted that he may be an inclusion in another of Australia’s famous staying races, the Group 1 Caulfield Cup.
