13/05/02 History on Firetaine's Side in Adelaide Cup

Firetaine stamped himself as one of the horses to beat in next week's Adelaide Cup with a hard fought narrow win over Homewrecker in Saturday's Carlton Draught Stakes at Morphettville.

The winner of the Group Two race over 2500 metres has a brilliant record when backed up in the Cup nine days later.

Last year's Adelaide Cup winner Apache King stormed into Cup calculations after scoring in the Carlton Draught.

Others to take the double since 1980 include Yashmak, Dealer's Choice, Moss Kingdom, Lord Reims (twice), Ideal Centreman, French Resort and Cronus.
