Port Guillaume Ruled Out of Caulfield Cup

Thu 8th October 2020

Highly rated import Port Guillaume has been withdrawn from next week’s 2020 Caulfield Cup, due to a veterinary examination.

Lindsay Park Racing released a statement via twitter confirming the news, saying:

“As is the case for all horses under the care of Lindsay Park, Port Guillaume’s welfare is our top priority and we will be performing further diagnostic testing to determine the colt’s prognosis.

“This is very disappointing for owner and loyal client Edmond Lee, however, we are looking forward to tackling the future with what is a very progressive and exciting horse.”

Port Guillaume was a $15 chance in the Caulfield Cup, and is guaranteed a start in the Melbourne Cup if he is passed fit, where he is currently a $34 chance.

From Muswellbrook to the Melbourne Cup, Will is mad about all things racing and sport. Spent countless hours in the backyard as a child pretending to be Glenn McGrath, and has been known to get deadly late swing with a taped tennis ball.
