Libran Given Penalty For Cup

Wednesday, 23rd March 2016

Irish-bred gelding Libran (Lawman-True Crystal, by Sadler's Wells) has been given a 2kg penalty for next month's Gr1 Sydney Cup (3200m) following his win in last weekend's Gr3 Manion Cup (2400m) at Rosehill, reports horseracing.com.au. The Chris Waller-trained import recorded his second consecutive stakes victory after landing the Listed Randwick City Stakes (2000m) on 5 March. Originally allotted 50kg, Libran will now carry 52kg in the $2 million staying feature at Randwick on 9 April. Owned by Highclere Thoroughbred Racing Australia, Libran's record reads 7 wins (including the Listed Randwick City Stakes) and 2 placings from 17 starts for $313,852 earnings.
