Monday, 4th June 2012

Deceased former NZ Grangewilliam Stud stallion Al Akbar (Success Express-Gala Night, by Blakeny) added a black-type success (& 16th individual stakes-winner) when favoured 5YO gelding Reuben Percival (Al Akbar-Yachting Magic, by Yachtie) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the $100,000 Listed Winter Cup (2400m) at Warwick Farm in Sydney. Reuben Percival (ridden by Peter Robl for trainer Gai Waterhouse) scored by a half-head from top-weighted fellow 5YO gelding The Verminator (Jeune-Fraar Side, by Fraar) with a further long-head to 4YO mare Crafty Irna (Starcraft-Zirna, by Deputy Governor). Reuben Percival took his record to 5 wins & 6 placings from 22 starts for $214,851 earnings. (Click on the link for full race details from Group Race Results at Arion Pedigrees.)
