Fantastic day at Bendigo on 28 October with the staging of the $151,000 Jacyo Bendigo Cup-LR, won by Redoute’s Choice entire, Zupacool.
Trained by John Symons (who guided the career of Bel Esprit) and Sheila Laxon, Zupacool will now tackle the Queen Elizabeth Stakes-G2 at Flemington on 7 November.
Full marks to the Bendigo Jockey Club – Brendan Dreschler and his committee, along with CEO Ian Hart and his team – and it was as close to perfect weather as you’ll ever find on a racecourse.
The crowd thought so too with over 10,000 flocking to the course.
It was a huge plus also to see Gerry Ryan – born and bred in Bendigo – throw his support behind the Cup by sponsoring the event with his company Jayco.
As mentioned on Channel 7 yesterday morning, Gerry “punches above his weight” when it comes to supporting sporting and charitable events and the sponsorship is a huge boon for Bendigo.
