Club Liquid will be looking to win his second Darwin Cup when he runs in the race this Monday August 1, 2011.
The winner of the 2008 Darwin Cup is said to be recovering from feet problems that have plagued him throughout his entire career.
Trainer Dick Leech is hopeful Club Liquid will improve on last year’s third place finish in the $175,000 Cup.
“It was a big effort for a horse who could hardly walk a week before,” Leech said.
“It’s just adrenalin that keeps him going. Some horses would sook if you pinched them but this old fella despite his problems puts in 100% all of the time.
“It isn’t bad for a horse who at three the vets told me wouldn’t race again. He has proved them all wrong.
“He is a beautiful old horse even though he spends half his life on ice.”
Leech believes that Club Liquid will give the other 2011 Darwin Cup starters a run for their money.
“They will know he is there (on Monday).
“It would be lovely if he could win it, I would be the happiest bloke on earth.”
