20/04/02 Cousy and Rohatyn Set for Adelaide Carnival
The first and second placegetters of this afternoon's Super Vobis Pago Pago Handicap (1200m) at Flemington are headed for the carnival riches in Adelaide next month.

Both Cousy, the winner, and the runner-up Rohatyn will head west for group glory with their respective trainers targeting the $100,000 The Jansz (Group Three) at Morphettville on Adelaide Cup Day.

A gelding by Dehere, Cousy was sent out a strong each way chance in today's race after a fair first up effort at Caulfield in late March.

Owned by the Gooree Pastoral Company Syndicate Cousy is trained at Caulfield by leading trainer Lee Freedman.

Freedman was impressed with the win and indicated Adelaide would be on the agenda for the youngster.

"His form around Bel Espit was pretty good," Freedman said after the win. "He deserves his chance at a better race in Adelaide now."

A key to Cousy's victory today was the fact the gelding got away from the gates in good style.

"He'd been half missing the start lately so I told the jockey (Brett Prebble) today to make sure he jumps with them today," Freedman added.

The trainer of the runner-up Rohatyn, Sutton Grange based Robbie Laing, also labelled the "Russian Caravan race," for his Carnegie colt.

Laing's comment about The Group Three The Jansz being the "Russian Caravan race," was because of an embarassing clerical error that led to the late afternoon disqualification of the winner.

The $100,000 feature event for two-year-olds will be run at Morphettville on May 20.
