Art Success Wins Grafton Cup

Friday, 18th July 2008

On the Australian track, NZ Rich Hill Stud's Gr1-winning stallion Pentire (Be My Guest-Gull Nook, by Mill Reef) added a black-type success when top-weighted 6YO gelding Art Success (Pentire-Zabelette, by Zabeel) scored a 2-lengths victory in yesterday's $160,000 Listed Grafton Cup (2350m) in northern NSW. Art Success (ridden by Jeff Lloyd for trainer John Collins) defeated favoured 5YO gelding Belmonte (Singspiel-Misunderstanding, by Palace Music) & 7YO gelding Juerga (Kaapstad-Skylarking, by Twig Moss). Art Success took his record to 7 wins (also including 2006's Gr1 Brisbane Cup over 3200m at Eagle Farm & Gr3 Chairman's Handicap over 2020m at Doomben) & 7 placings (including last month's Listed Ipswich Cup over 2150m & 2006's Gr2 P.J.O'Shea Stakes over 2400m at Eagle Farm) from 37 starts for $645,661 earnings.
