Beat The Tide Wins Canberra Cup
The 8YO gelding Beat The Tide (All Ashore-Can You Beat That) caused one of the biggest upset in years in an Australian black-type event when he won yesterday's $125,000 Listed Canberra Cup (2000m) by 3.25-lengths at Thoroughbred Park at the massive official betting ring odds of 150-1 (& paying an even more astounding 316-1 on the NSW TAB). Beat The Tide (ridden by Jai Shankar for trainer Mick Miladinovic) defeated 7YO gelding Beau (Danewin-Diaz) & favoured 6YO mare Bush Honey (Woodman-Saving). Beat The Tide now has 9 wins & 9 placings in 54 starts for $172,240 prize-money.
