Macknuckle Wins Canberra Cup

Monday, 30th November 2009

Ill-fated Craiglea Stud sire Moon Rocket (Zabeel-Skyrocket, by Danehill) added a black-type success when favoured 5YO gelding Macknuckle (Moon Rocket-Knucklemania, by Mister C) scored a 2.75-lengths victory in yesterday’s $200,000 Listed Canberra Cup (2000m) at Canberra. Macknuckle (ridden by Dwayne Dunn for trainer Bernie Howlett) defeated 7YO gelding Spinney (Octagonal-Ochiltree, by Twig Moss) & 6YO mare Vintage Rock (Thunder Gulch-Rock Review, by Take Your Partner). Macknuckle now has 8 wins (also including 2008’s Listed Wagga Gold Cup over 2000m) & 9 placings (including June’s Listed Ipswich Cup over 2150m, May’s Gr3 Premier's Cup over 2200m at Doomben & January's Listed Australia Day Cup over 2400m at Randwick) from 28 starts for $438,075 earnings.
