Cadeaux lands Epsom sprint
Wednesday 25th April 2012
Cadeaux Pearl became Scott's third Turf winner in the space of a week when he powered to victory in the Investec Specialist Bank Handicap at Epsom under six times champion jockey Kieren Fallon. The four-year-old forged clear of Taajub and Taurus Twins to land the near £10,000 first prize and register his fifth career win.
The son of Acclamation, owned by Scott's father Paul, recorded a respectable time of 57.45secs considering that conditions were testing and the field encountered an awkward cross wind. He had a fitness edge over most of his rivals following a successful winter on the sand, which yielded back-to-back handicap wins at Southwell and Kempton.
