Consistent 8YO gelding Carael Boy (Free Flyer-Song Of Spring, by Northern Spring) continued his recent purple patch (3 black-type victories & a black-type placing in the last 2 months) in a thrilling dead-heat victory with up-and-coming 4YO gelding High Cee (Marju-Sweet Vienna, by Dahar) in yesterday's $175,000 Gr3 Newcastle Cup (2300m). Carael Boy (ridden by Larry Cassidy for trainer Bob Milligan) & High Cee (ridden by Blake Shinn for trainer Bart Cummings) defeated 4YO Cross Bar (Cape Cross-Lady Leica).
