Gris Caro Wins Listed Balaklava Cup
At Balaklava in South Australia, English-bred 5YO entire Gris Caro (With Approval-Aviane, by Winged Love) scored by 0.2-length for trainer Jake Stephens in the $80,000 Listed Balaklava Cup (1600m) for 3YO+, over 6YO mare and stable-mate Detox (Golden Snake-Iota of Luck, by Blevic) & 5YO gelding Baby Boy (Barely a Moment-Kournerov, by Jeune). This was the maiden Australian victory for the imported French galloper i his first local outing and took his record to 5 wins (including the Listed Prix Georges Trabaud at Marseille) & 5 placings (including the Listed Derby du Languedoc at Toulouse) from 11 starts. The striking grey is sure to derive significant benefit from his first Australian outing after racing a little erratically in the straight.
