Aust-Bred Golden Gunner Wins Gr1 Macau Gold Cup
In Macau, former NZ Windsor Park shuttler Black Minnaloushe (Storm Cat-Coral Dance, by Green Dancer) added a Gr1 triumph when Australian-bred 4YO gelding Golden Gunner (Black Minnaloushe-Clever Clogs, by Woodman) scored a short-head victory in the HK$1.2 million (A$150,000) Gr1 Macau Gold Cup (1800m) at Taipa. Golden Gunner (ridden by Tiago Pereira for trainers Brian Kan & K.C.Tse) defeated fellow 4YO geldings St Peter's Gift (St Petersburg-Royal Pass, by Kingdom Bay) & Good Uncle (My Halo-Tesse O'Shea, by Rhythm). Golden Gunner (passed-in as a yearling for $32,000 at the 2008 Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale) took his record to 5 wins & 2 placings (including March's Gr3 Macau Derby Trial over 1500m) from 12 starts.
