Failure to gain a place in the Melbourne Cup may put Darren Weir-trained Yogi on a plane to Christchurch and an assault on the New Zealand Cup on Saturday fortnight.
Yogi has his last chance to gain a Melbourne Cup spot in Saturday’s Lexus at Flemington.
“There’s still a chance he may go to New Zealand,” said a Weir stable representative today.
He is offering 12s for the New Zealand Cup. He has won six from 26 starts and earned A$370,000
