The first Gold Cup race day to be held on a Saturday has proven a knockout success for Murray Bridge Racing Club.
A big crowd turned out over the weekend to see Jack the Lad beat En Français by just over a length to claim the $120,000 feature race.
Wellington trainer Michael Hickmott had to settle for third place with Lord Vladivostok, while Stuart Padman’s Montign ran fourth and pre-race favourite Chicago Storm, from David Alridge’s stable, came fifth.
Karavas won the day’s new feature race, the Moorundi Classic, while Bubble Over took out a new sprint named for former racing club chairman Reg Nolan and Travis Doudle’s Wiggum won the thousand-metre 1000 Guineas.
As ever, a couple of thousand locals and visitors were dressed to the nines for the occasion, and Murray Bridge News was there.
