15 wins

Raced 1960-70s

An old warhorse who had 129 starts and didn’t get warmed up until the distances reached 2000 metres. He took 19 starts to win a race and was six before he scored his first open company win in the QTC Metropolitan (2400m). At seven he won three more open company staying races but as an eight-year-old he blossomed. Cachondeo won the QTC Barnes Plate, a second QTC Metropolitan, the Labour Day Cup and the 1970 Brisbane Cup (at 40-1). He was the oldest horse to win a Group 1 race in Brisbane. Cachondeo, who ran second in an AJC Metropolitan, never won in the south but performed well in the 1970 Melbourne Cup. He also won a city race in his nine-year-old and 10-year-old years. His win at 10 equalled the record for the oldest horse to win an open company race in Brisbane. In a strange twist his owners Mim and Ian Hedley bred him from the mare Gabriella making him a half brother to Montezuma who was one of the fastest horses to race in Brisbane but usually got a stitch past 1200m.
