Rodrigo Diaz (GB)

Gelding, 7 yrs
Sire: Golden Horn (United Kingdom)
Dam: Kitty Wells (United Kingdom)
Form: 14: 4-3-1
Trainer:

A Group 2 performer who will be aimed towards the 2023 Group 1 Melbourne Cup.

Rodrigo has ran many good races for us. A four time winner, some of his best efforts have come in defeat, especially when looking unlucky not to peg back the top class Hukum in the 2021 Geoffrey Freer Stakes at Newbury.

His 2022 campaign had the Melbourne Cup as his target. He ran a tremendous, fast-finishing fourth, over an inadequate 12 furlongs in the Geelong Cup. The winner went on to be second in the Melbourne Cup and, but for an injury preventing Rodrigo’s participation, we are confident he would have been among the placings in that race. The gelding is now permanently in Australia in the yard of Ciaron Maher. Unfortunately, he’s had a couple of niggling setbacks but we expect to get going with him again soon.
