Dulcify racehorse Cox Plate winner 1979

DulcifyDulcify was foaled in New Zealand 1975 and was by Decies from the Australian mare Sweet Candy and was owned and raced by the legendary Colin Hayes who later claimed he was "the best horse I ever raced".

He won his first race at the amazing odds of 300/1 and two starts later was just run down in the SAJC Derby by Regal Jester before winning his next start in the VRC Derby.

Dulcify also won a Rosehill Guineas, 2nd in the Tancred Stakes, and then won the AJC Derby.

At four he won the Craiglee Stakes, 3rd in the Underwood Stakes and won the Turnbull Stakes.

He won the Cox Plate by a record seven lengths in 1979 and was then favourite for the Melbourne Cup when galloped on by the eventual winner and suffered a broken pelvis and had to be put down on 6/11/1979.

In his career he had 21 starts fro 10 wins, 2 seconds and a third for prize money of $568, 775 and is in the history books as the first horse to win four $100,00+ races in one season.
