Ellerslie Group Treble Headed By Gr1 Auckland Cup

Wednesday, 6th March 2013

This afternoon's meeting at Ellerslie in Auckland will showcase some of New Zealand's best stayers when a quality field lines up for the NZ$500,000 Gr1 Auckland Cup (3200m). Former Gr1 VRC Derby winner Sangster has hit a purple patch of form and comes into the race as favourite, chasing a hat-trick following last start victories in the Gr1 Darci Brahma International Stakes & Gr2 Avondale Cup. Earlier features on the card include the Gr3 Westbury Classic (1400m) & Gr3 McKee Family Sunline Vase (2100m). In the latter, Stephen McKee is represented by outsider Blanket Bay.
