Skyerush Wins Gr3 Liverpool City Cup
At Warwick Farm in Sydney, Ampulla Lodge stallion Super Jet (Dayjur-Amelia Bearhart, by Bold Hour) added a group success when 7YO mare Skyerush (Super Jet-Bally Aura, by Bellotto) scored by 0.2-lengths for trainer Guy Walter in the $126,500 Gr3 Liverpool City Cup (1300m) for 4YOs+, over 5YO gelding Riva de Lago (Encosta de Lago-Ashenti, by Ashkalani) & 6YO gelding Bagman (Easy Rocking-Bada Bing, by Dehere). Taking full advantage of a dawdling pace and turning the race into a sit and sprint, Skyerush took her record to 9 wins (also including 2012's Gr2 ATC Emancipation Stakes & 2011's Listed Belle Of The Turf Stakes at Gosford) & 19 placings (including runner-up in last start's Listed Summond Stakes at Caulfield, 2012's Gr1 Tattersalls Tiara & Gr3 Pendant Stakes), from 41 starts for $764,310 earnings.
