Derby Long-Term Goal For Cape Blanco Colt
Donna Logan and Chris Gibbs have Gr1 New Zealand Derby in mind for Mongolian Sky, the first Australasian winner for Cambridge Stud stallion Cape Blanco, reports NZ Racing Desk. "He's only going to get better as he continues to strengthen up," Logan said. "He's an out-and-out stayer. He's going the right way and he's in the ownership of a team that knows what it takes to win a Derby." Mongolian Sky, who opened his account at Ruakaka last week, is owned by the Inner Mongolia Rider Horse Industry, who raced the New Zealand and Australian Derby winner Mongolian Khan. His sire, Cape Blanco (Galileo-Laurel Delight, by Presidium), was a high class racehorse who won 5 races at Gr1 level, including the 2010 edition of the Irish Derby.
