TURF TOPICS/ MANFRED'S WIN' Caulfield^ " Cup Notes Manfred's victory in ,Uie Caulfield Cup stamps the four year old as one ot tho best horses seen on the Victoria!, turf for.many years. His owner, Mr. Ben Chaffey, previously won the Caul- field Cup with Whittier. By winning the Caulfield, Manfred will now incur a 101b. penalty ror the Melbourne Cup, which will bring his weight up to 10.1. Carrying- such a high weight lils task is a tremendous one, yet his trainer is sanguine re- garding his chances and said before the start of the Caulfield that if he won tlio race and the owner entered Ulm for the latter event, he would win Whether Manfred is capable of ac- complishing ^ljat; t/isk is probleniQiHal but there is no gainsaying that the horse is a champion in the true sense or the word, and many people aro be- ginning lo thing that lie,can do any- thing. If the Victorian can win the classic he will lie probably .stamped as the greatest horse of all time.
