The 2013 Cockram Stakes was won by Octavia at Caulfield Racecourse last Saturday August 17, 2013.
Octavia won the race by 0.4 lengths ahead of A Time For Julia, who finished second, and Oriental Ruby, who placed in third position.
The four-year-old was paying odds of $3.20 to win the 2013 Cockram Stakes at bookmaker.com.au.
Octavia has now won five of her 11 race starts and has earned more than $343,000 in prize money during her horse racing career.
The Holy Roman Empire mare is trained by Michael Moroney and was ridden by jockey Kerrin McEvoy in the race.
Moroney was thrilled with Octavia’s first Group race win in the 2013 Cockram Stakes.
“She’s very gallant all the time,” Moroney said.
“I thought she was really solid today because it was a race where she was pretty vulnerable.
“She’s really tough and she’s a sprinter that takes a bit of work.
“We’re probably going to try her at 1,400 (metres next).”
McEvoy was equally impressed with Octavia’s winning effort.
“She obviously is stepping up to a nice grade race today,” he said.
“But she’s been in winning form.
“Admittedly she had a nice cosy run but she tries really hard.
“(But) there’s quite a strong breeze and I just thought it may have hindered her a little bit.
“She’s a little brave thing that gives her best.”
