Tuscan Fire has now won 10 of his 41 race starts and has earned more than $530,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.

The Tuscanos gelding has now scored himself an automatic entry into the Group 1 Caulfield Cup at Caulfield Racecourse during the spring racing carnival.

Trainer Dan O’Sullivan was thrilled with the result after the 2013 Mornington Cup was run.

“You couldn’t believe it could work out as beautiful as that to get the run that he got,” O’Sullivan said.

“It’s a big thrill. It’s a great bunch of owners…a huge, big thrill to come here and win this today.

“Everything went perfect today, (it was) a great ride.”

Tuscan Fire was ridden by top jockey Glen Boss in the 2013 Mornington Cup, who put the performance down to O’Sullivan’s magnificent training effort.

“This is all about Dan really. He’s turned this horse out in unbelievable condition every time I’ve ridden him,” Boss said.

“He looked good and geez he gave me a great ride.”

Tuscan Fire, who is proven over the jumps as well as in flat racing, is now expected to have a light autumn carnival before preparing for the spring.
