Lucifer’s Reward stormed home at Caulfield on Saturday to take his earnings over $400k for Brendan McCarthy.

The win of Lucifer’s Reward looked very stylish but held even more merit considering the track bias being suited to those on speed.

Trainer Brendan McCarthy was confident of the three year olds chances.

“I was really happy to back-up after last week’s race,” McCarthy said.

“Last week he loomed into the race against a good field but his run just petered out, but I thought we’re going to crack one eventually so there was every reason to go around here.

“I’d hoped he would have been handier in the run but I also told him not to bustle into the race.

“He actually had to take another hold of the horse when it started to take off midrace.”
