El Dorado Wins Singapore Gr1 Gold Cup
In Singapore yesterday, 5YO gelding El Dorado (Stay Gold-White Leap, by White Muzzle) scored a 1.5-lengths victory in the S$1.35 million (A$1.08m) Gr1 Singapore Gold Cup (2200m) at Kranji to take this race for the 2nd successive year. El Dorado (ridden by Australian jockey Ronnie Stewart for trainer Hideyuki Takaoka) defeated Australian-bred 4YO gelding Given Vision (Belong To Me-Aurum Valley, by Made of Gold) & 6YO gelding Desert Links (Kahal-Selborne Park, by Home Guard). El Dorado took his record to 7 wins & 5 placings (including 2008's Gr1 Singapore Derby over 2000m) from 30 starts.
