Paul Cave owns a bigger share in lightly-raced three-year-old Kabiddi than he originally expected but that could prove a blessing if the youngster makes the transition to stakes racing on Saturday.

Cave purchased Kabiddi for $36,000 at the Classic yearling sale last year and believes it is worth having a throw at the stumps with the last-start midweek winner in Saturday’s Listed Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) at Warwick Farm.

“I was with a few of the blokes from Coolmore and they said, `come and have a look at this horse’,” Cave said of how he came about Kabiddi.

“He is by Aussie Rules who was the leading sire of two-year-olds in Europe at the time.

“He was a well put together and balanced little horse so I bid on him.”

Cave had a number of owners lined up but when some of those fell by the wayside he was left with a large stake in the horse.

“I’m happy about that at the moment,” the Warwick Farm-based trainer said.

Kabiddi made his debut on August 9 on the Kensington track at Randwick, finishing third to Doctor Doom, before coming out on his home turf to score a narrow win in a 1400m 3YO Maiden on August 23.

“He has been a bit spooky and a very insecure horse so I gave him a number of trials before his debut,” Cave said.

“So when he ran third first-up I was really happy because he still had a lot to learn.

“And he still does have a lot to learn, even though he won last start.”

While Cave would have preferred Saturday’s meeting to still be at Randwick with the bigger straight, he said the Listed race was a better option than taking on older horses in non-feature races.

“It’s either that or run in a Benchmark race but at this time of year you’re taking on seasoned, older horses in those whereas this race is against his own age,” Cave said.

Kabiddi was at $17 for the Ming Dynasty on Friday with Fernhill Handicap winner Darci Be Good favourite at $3.

Ambidexter and New Zealand galloper Sangster both won on the same midweek program at Warwick Farm as Kabiddi and are also set to contest the Ming Dynasty.

Ambidexter, a full-brother to Group One winner Skilled, is being aimed at the Group One Spring Champion Stakes by trainer Peter Snowden.
