The 2013 Sydney Cup will see Kelinni take his place in the $500,000 race after a dominant win in the Listed JRA plate at Royal Randwick last weekend.

Kelinni finished fourth in the $6.2 million Melbourne Cup last spring and is once again on a Melbourne Cup path in 2013.

”He came a long way in a short time. I don’t know why, he just kept improving, he could stay all day. I think he’s come back bigger and stronger and that’s hopefully a key to improvement,” Waller said.

Kelinni finished fourth in the Group 1 The BMW at Rosehill earlier this April, causing Waller to keep him in work for the remainder of the autumn carnival.

”I was confident enough to think he would run in the first three in the BMW and that would be enough to concentrate on the Melbourne Cup.

“But he ran fourth, so he needs to do a bit more to try and justify going into the Melbourne Cup.

“He’s got to run in the right races and the Sydney Cup is the right race.”

Kelinni has won nine of his 24 race starts and has earned more than $930,000 in prize money during his horse racing career. is your one stop shop for all your betting needs this autumn, winter and spring racing carnivals.
