Havana Cooler Wins Gr3 Doncaster Prelude
At Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, Godolphin's talented 6YO Irish-bred gelding Havana Cooler (Hurricane Run-Unquenchable, by Kingmambo) registered his first stakes success since arriving in Australia when scoring by 0.2-length for trainer John O'Shea in the $150,000 Gr3 Doncaster Prelude (1500m) for 3YO+, over 5YO geldings Cosmic Cube (Dehere-So Keen, by Jade Hunter) & Rudy (Red Dazzler-Go on Now Go, by Success Express). Havana Cooler took his record to 3 wins and 7 placings (including the Gr1 ATC Metropolitan Handicap) from 15 starts for $279,369 earnings. O'Shea confirmed Havana Cooler's long-term target is the Gr2 Brisbane Cup (2400m) in June.
