Warrior Within Wins Grafton Cup

Friday, 15th July 2011

Former Widden Stud & now South Australian Rivers End Stud-based stallion King Cugat (Kingmambo-Tricky Game, by Majestic Light) added a black-type success when 5YO gelding Warrior Within (King Cugat-Ava Bolli, by Volksraad) scored a 0.75-length victory in yesterday’s $150,000 Listed Grafton Cup (2350m) at Grafton in NSW. Warrior Within (ridden by Paul Hammersley for trainer Bruce Hill) defeated equal top-weighted fellow 5YO gelding Gold In Dubai (Desert Sun-Rory's Song, by Rory's Jester) & equal top-weighted 6YO gelding Shuffle The Cash (Dash For Cash-Final Shuffle, by Forest Glow). Warrior Within (an $11,000 yearling consigned by Hill Haven at the 2007 Magic Millions January Gold Coast Sale) took his record to 9 wins & 7 placings (including 2010’s Listed Ipswich Cup over 2150m) from 45 starts for $203,800 earnings.
