THE CLOSEST POSSIBLE MARGIN IN THE GROUP 1 AUSTRALIAN CUP AT FLEMINGTON
"It's a fine line between pleasure and pain", (as sung by Christina Amphlett and others) because THESEO'S Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes win (by a nose) at Flemington during the Spring carnival, was followed by a Group 1 second (by a nose) in the Australian Cup, in the Autumn. All of his owners were in attendance at Flemington and no one was certain of the result until the photo was released. He was called the winner, but the smallest possible margin revealed that THESEO had run second, having been literally caught on the line in the last stride by Niconero. THESEO returns to Sydney and will next race in the 2,000 metres Group 1 Ranvet Stakes at Rosehill Gardens on 21st March.
