Tipungwuti Wins Southern Rocycling Classic
Coolmore shuttler Fusaichi Pegasus (Mr Prospector-Angel Fever, by Danzig) added a black-type success when gelded son Tipungwuti (Fusaichi Pegasus-So Gorgeous, by Brief Truce) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to yesterday's $75,000 Listed Southern Rocycling Classic (1600m) for 3YOs at Morphettville. Tipungwuti (ridden by Dwayne Dunn for trainer Mark Kavanagh) scored by a long-head from the filly Surfside Christmas (Encosta De Lago-Jingle Bells, by Christmas Tree) with a further nose to fellow gelding Skiddaw Peak (Generous-River Flow, by Affirmed). Tipungwuti (a $330,000 yearling at the 2005 Magic Millions Adelaide Sale) now has 2 wins & 3 runner-ups (including behind multiple Gr1-winner Miss Finland on his debut in 2006's Listed Talindert Stakes over 1100m at Flemington) from 8 starts for $109,520 earnings.
