Trainer Mick Price has no regrets about missing the Caulfield Cup with Pakal after the German import took out the Listed $200,000 TAB Cranbourne Cup (2025m) at Cranbourne yesterday.

Aided by a rails hugging ride by Glen Boss, Pakal ($4.60) was able to steam away in the straight to score by two and a quarter lengths from Seritorius ($10) and Mourinho ($15).

Price elected not to accept with Pakal for the Group 1 $2.65m BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) at Caulfield on October 19 at the third acceptance level and instead set him for the easier Cranbourne Cup.

“He’s just been on the up and up, we have never intended to give him too hard a spring and that’s why we didn’t accept for the Caulfield Cup,” Price told Racing Network.

“He’s a stayer with a turn of foot, he’s clean-winded and he’s sound.”

Yesterday’s win was the second for Price since the five year old arrived from Germany after winning in restricted company over 1600m at Caulfield on August 17.

Price admits training the imported horses can be challenging, but added that he enjoyed having them in his stable.

“I’ve really enjoyed training these imports. You have to read them a bit but I’m really enjoying having them in the stable,” Price said.

Boss was able to save every inch of ground from the inside barrier and never went around a horse to score a decisive win in on the of the best Cranbourne Cup fields to date.

Pakal made light of the 60kg and dashed to the front when the gap opened up before being eased down on the line indicating that he had more wins in stall for the Price stable.

“Drawn one was a big plus, but it would not have mattered where he drew really. He has shown us some very good ability at home, but he just hasn’t had the chance to shine,” Boss said.

“This was the best Cranbourne Cup field ever assembled and he made them look second rate and he did it with 60kg.

“No one has seen his true ability yet on the racetrack.”
