The presentation was made by Greg Carpenter Racing Victoria’s Executive Manager who said that Australian sports fans love those who take up a challenge.

"To be honoured like that in Melbourne, Australia, as an English horse, it's fantastic and he means the world to me," Robin Trevor Jones

Red Cadeaux now heads to Hong Kong to run in the Hong Kong Vase, a race which he won in 2012.
