Hippopus Wins Listed Canberra Cup

Monday, 7th March 2016

At Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory, Coolmore's deceased dual Derby-winning shuttler & 6-time Gr1 victor High Chaparral (Sadler's Wells-Kasora, by Dashaan) added a black-type success when 6YO gelding Hippopus (High Chaparral-Straight Eight, by Danske) scored by 2.3-lengths for trainer Gai Waterhouse in the $200,000 Listed Canberra Cup (2000m) for 3YO+, over 5YO geldings Off The Rails (Snitzel-It's You, by Celtic Swing) & Centre Pivot (More Than Ready-Waterwise, by Zabeel). A NZ$350,000 yearling consigned by Windsor Park at the 2011 NZB National Sale at Karaka, Hippopus took his record to 5 wins (including the Listed VRC St Leger) and 7 placings (including the Gr2 ATC Tulloch Stakes) from 29 starts for $440,470 earnings.
