Cup winner back on home turf

BROADMARSH-trained stayer Norsqui has arrived home in great shape after comfortably winning Monday's $400,000 Adelaide Cup.

The Walter McShane trained gelding handled the trip across the Bass Strait with aplomb and Tasmania's best two miler will now be set for the $500,000 Group One Sydney Cup (3200m) at Randwick on April 29.

"How he has travelled back is crucial to what happens in the near future as far as the Sydney Cup is concerned," McShane said today.

"I'm happy with the way he got off the truck and he looks as though he has travelled really well.

"In fact it surprises me at how well he does travel because he's such a light eater at the best of times and these long trips can take it out of them, especially lightly framed horses like him."

Shortly after Norsqui had arrived back on familiar soil at Broadmarsh he was in his paddock having a pick on his favourite grass.

Moments later his father (Matsqui) came strolling over to see what all the fuss was about.

Within seconds both horses were communicating as only horses can.

The long-term plan for Norsqui will be the 2013 Melbourne Cup -- providing all is well with the son of Matsqui.
