Lindsay Park has confirmed Caulfield Cup winner Boom Time will take up an invite into the Japan Cup on November 26.
Trainer David Hayes famously took Better Loosen Up to Japan to win the Cup in 1990, and now he – along with co-trainers son Ben and nephew Tom Dabernig – is attempting to try and claim the famous race again with the horse he owns outright.
Dabernig confirmed on Thursday that Boom Time, a Flying Spur entire, would be accepting the Japan Racing Association’s invite, for the race that offers an estimated AUD$3.44 million to connections of the winner.
“He got invited to go to the Japan Cup, and we’ve accepted the invitation. At this stage, he’s scheduled to depart on Monday,” Dabernig told Channel 7.
“That’ll be nice to be a part of.”
