Ecuador Wins Listed Lord Mayors Cup

Monday, 9th May 2016

At Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, Coolmore's deceased dual Derby-winning shuttler & 6-time Gr1 victor High Chaparral (Sadler's Wells-Kasora, by Dashaan) added a black-type success when 6YO New Zealand-bred gelding Ecuador (High Chaparral-Bak da Princess, by Danske) scored by 1.5-lengths for trainer Gai Waterhouse in the $100,000 Listed Lord Mayors Cup (2000m) for 3YO+, over 5YO New Zealand-bred mare Lady Le Fay (Thorn Park-Mia le Fay, by Zabeel) & 6YO Irish-bred gelding Havana Cooler (Hurricane Run-Unquenchable, by Kingmambo). Ecuador, who is a full-brother to Gr1 Easter Handicap winner & Gr1 Auckland Cup placegetter Pondarosa Miss, took his record to 7 wins and 8 placings (including the Gr1 ATC Epsom Handicap) from 26 starts for $635,100 earnings. He was a NZ$360,000 purchase at the 2011 NZB Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Esker Lodge.
