Pelicano Wins Listed Parramatta Cup
At a wet and windy Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, former Swettenham Stud sire Court Of Jewels (Danehill-Nine Carat, by Sir Tristram) added a stakes success when 4YO gelding Pelicano (Court of Jewels–Musk, by Kaapstad) scored by 1.3-lengths for trainer Tony McEvoy in the $100,800 Listed Parramatta Cup (2000m), over 5YO geldings Kaypers (Cape Cross-Miss Electra, by Zeditave) & Frozen Rope (King of Prussia-Timor Flyer, by Azzaam). Scoring a hat-trick, Pelicano took his record to 8 wins (including last start's Listed Birthday Cup in Adelaide) & 2 placings (including runner-up in 2012's Listed Ballarat Cup) from 15 starts for $282,600 earnings.
