Cockram Stakes 2012 Results – Lady Melksham Wins

August 20th, 2012

The 2012 Cockram Stakes was won by Lady Melksham at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday August 18, 2012.

Lady Melksham won the race by 0.4 of a length in front of Le Societe, who finished second, and Glows, who placed third.

The Artie Schiller mare has now won four of her five race starts and has earned more than $170,000 in prize money.

The four-year-old is trained at Flemington by John Sadler, who was thrilled with her win.

The trainer is yet to mark out a spring racing program for Lady Melksham, who is set to take on some of the top carnival’s top feature sprints.

“We’d only planned to give her two or three runs this campaign,” Sadler said.

“We’ll be pretty careful with her as to whether she has another run or whether she might go out and tackle something a little later in the spring.

“We’ll just leave our options open at the moment.”

Saturday’s 2012 Cockram Stakes was the first spring target for Lady Melksham.
