Rupert Heads Gold Edition Entries
Unbeaten colt Winning Rupert heads the 14 nominations for Saturday’s Listed Gold Edition Plate (1600m) at Doomben. A $67,500 purchase by trainer Bjorn Baker at the 2015 Magic Millions Gold Coast March Yearling Sale from the draft of Eliza Park International, Winning Rupert is undefeated in three starts after resuming with a record breaking win in the QTIS Three-Year-Old Plate (1200m) at Eagle Farm ten days ago. Should the 3YO win the Gold Edition and the Gr3 Vo Rogue Plate (1400m) a fortnight later, he will collect a $500,000 bonus as part of the Queensland Summer Crowns series. Winning Rupert's primary summer target is the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas at the Gold Coast on 14 January.
