Best Solution wins Caulfield Cup
Best Solution has won the $5 million Caulfield Cup in thrilling fashion, with a photo finish showing a narrow victory over the Lloyd Williams trained Homesman.
The victory gives the Godolphin stable and trainer Saeed bin Suroor his second Caulfield Cup and a tantalizing shot at the Melbourne Cup.
Jockey Pat Cosgrave became the second Northern Irishman to win the race but conceded the luck went his way.
“I had a bad trip around, Saeed was adamant we need to be forward and handy. I had to work so hard to get to where I was. An unbelievable performance.”
“My horse is a good stayer. He toughed it out. It was a battle, he stays well, hard and tough.”
