The Chris Waller trained Verry Elleegant has won the 2020 Caulfield Cup.

Anthony Van Dyk came second with The Chosen One coming in third finished third in the 2400-metre race.

It was Waller’s first ever Caulfield Cup.

“It’s a very special win with a very special horse,” Waller said.

“She’s tough. And I thought she was beaten to tell you the truth at the 100-metre mark, and she dug so deep.”

Waller added: “Mightn’t sound a lot to those watching on from home, but I can assure you, Caulfield Cup history suggests mares with 55 (kg) — they don’t win very often.

“That’s how good she is.”

Verry Elleegant, ridden by Mark Zahra, made a huge statement ahead of the Melbourne Cup and will take home $3 million of the $5 million prizemoney on offer.
