RICH Enuff rocketed into favoritism for the Caulfield Guineas on the back of yet another spectacular win, reports Racing Network.


Bookmakers slashed the odds of Rich Enuff after the Ken Keys trained colt made his rivals look second rate in today’s Guineas Prelude at Caulfield tightened the odds for Rich Enuff from $9 to $3.60 after the colt posted the softest of two and a half length wins.


For Keys and his wife Louise who bred the colt the Caulfield Guineas shapes as a life changing experience.


Keys reaffirmed that Rich Enuff, unbeaten in all three starts this spring, is not for sale.


“It’s bloody scary. I really don’t know what to say, what you saw is real,” Keys said.


“He’s still not there yet as a racehorse, he’s a big baby.”


Keys said Rich Enuff was the horse he’s searched for over the past 30 years.


“You would not believe how tough we’ve done it. Everyone has done the tough yards,” he said.


“To get something back at last for everyone who has put so much in is just fabulous.”


Asked about stretching out to the 1600 m of the Guineas, Keys replied: “I don’t think that is an issue.


“His mum won over a mile (sic 1600 m) and she was a better horse than her record suggest. There is a bit of strength in the family when you go through it.”


Rich Enuff, heavily backed from $4.60 to $3.70, cruised across to sit outside Liberation, which led, but surged to the front not long after entering the run home.


With Michael Rodd kind to him over the concluding stages, Rich Enuff coasted to victory ahead of Looks Like The Cat, the $3.10 favourite, which hit the line strong after settling mid field.


Awesome Rock, $8.50, ran his usual honest race to finish two and a quarter lengths away third.


Rodd described as “unbelievable” the performance of Rich Enuff.


He said his concerns that the colt may fire up and not switch off proved errant as Rich Enuff, in fact, relaxed too much.


“The opposite happened. He cruised over, just dropped the bit and between the 800 and 500 (metres) he dropped the bit that much that I thought he might be gone,” Rodd said.


“I gave him a little tickle before the turn and he just came back up and I thought ‘oh my god’. I’m sure sure if I put one around his tail he would have taken off.”
