Zupacool Wins Bendigo Cup

Thursday, 29th October 2009

On the Australian track, flagship Arrowfield Stud stallion & former Australian champion sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a black-type success (& 56th individual stakes-winner) when 4YO entire Zupacool (Redoute's Choice-Be Cool, by Grosvenor) burst through an opening in the final 100m to snatch victory by a neck in yesterday’s $150,000 Listed Bendigo Cup (2200m) in Victoria. Zupacool (ridden by Luke Nolen for trainers John Symons & Sheila Laxon) defeated 5YO gelding Crossthestart (Cape Cross-Startling Lady, by Gold And Ivory) & evergreen 10YO gelding Daka’s Gem (Sedaka-Shades Of Jemma, by Thehool). Zupacool (a $200,000 yearling consigned by Makybe at the 2007 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) took his record to 5 wins & 2 placings from 15 starts for $215,798 earnings.
