Foundry has been penalised for the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups following his win in The Metropolitan at Randwick.
Registering his first win on Saturday since February 2014, Foundry was handed a 1kg penalty for both races by Racing Victoria handicapper Greg Carpenter.
The Lloyd Williams-owned stayer now has 51kg in both Cups.
“Foundry defeated Big Duke (55kg) by 0.5 lengths with 4.5kg less weight,” Carpenter said.
Jon Snow escaped a penalty for his win in the JRA Cup at Moonee Valley on Friday night.
Carpenter said with 54.5kg for both Cups he was already high in the weights for a four-year-old following his ATC Australian Derby win at Randwick in April.
