Cadeaux team enjoy the ride

Red Cadeaux was out on the track at Sha Tin, looking cool and collected ahead of Sunday's Longines Hong Kong Vase.

The Ronnie Arculi-owned gelding keeps bouncing back to silence those that dare write him off, latterly when runner-up to Fiorente in the Melbourne Cup at Flemington.

With career earnings of just under 4 million, Gerald Mosse's mount is a testament to the training skills of Ed Dunlop and his travelling head lad Robin Trevor-Jones, who has been with Red Cadeaux on all his incredible journeys.

Trevor-Jones indicated that Red Cadeaux is set to continue his relentless pursuit of the top International middle-distance prizes through 2014, and said: "He'll have options all over the world in the next 12 months, it's a case of carrying on until he tells us he's had enough.

"I think he was beaten by a well-handicapped rival in Fiorente, while his Melbourne race against Dunaden could have gone one way or the other, unfortunately it went their way.

"The people behind him are looking to the future. One thing that is noticeable is that he takes a bit longer to get over his races, but you can't argue that he's showing as much ability as ever and enjoying every moment.

"Mr Arculi is looking for the next Red Cadeaux and bought his half-brother for 280,000 guineas at Tattersalls."
