Congratulations to Greg Eurell for his one-two performance with Apache Cat and Mic Mac in the $200,000 Schweppes Stakes-G2 (1200m) at Moonee Valley on Saturday (24 October).
Greg is one of racing’s quiet achievers and a true horseman, having represented Australia at the 1984 Olympics when just 24 years old.
Taking out his trainer’s licence in 1987, Greg’s efforts had gone largely unheralded until the magnificently baldy faced Apache Cat ‘arrived’ on the scene with his Cadbury Guineas-G1 victory in March 2006 (the first of seven Group One wins).
And now he has two genuine stars in his Cranbourne stable with Mic Mac (by Statue of Liberty) winning seven of his first eight starts and earning cheques in all but one of his 11 outings. Following Saturday’s short neck second to Apache Cat, Mic Mac has now won $652,938, while the ‘Cat’ has won $4.6 million from his 19 victories and 11 placings.
Commenting after the race, Greg said it was hard to split the pair and was thrilled to quinella a race of this calibre – a true weight for age spectacular with the beaten brigade including Group One winners Light Fantastic, Duport and Danleigh, plus multiple stakeswinners Bank Robber, Ortensia, Lucky Secret and Falaise.
