Almost Court Wins Listed Canberra Cup

Monday, 12th March 2018

At Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory, Wellfield Lodge's 4-time Gr1-winning stallion Alamosa (O'Reilly-Lodore Mystic, by Centaine) added a black-type success when 5YO New Zealand-bred gelding Almost Court (Alamosa-Cincer Bella, by Victory Dance) scored a strong front-running victory in the $200,000 Listed Canberra Cup (2000m) for 3YO+, defeating Admiral Jello & Get On The Grange. Almost Court, a son of dual Gr1 winning Kiwi mare Cinder Bella and a $36,000 purchase at the 2014 NZ Bloodstock Select Yearling Sale from the draft of Curraghmore Stud, improved his record to 7 wins and 3 placings from 15 starts for $237,624 in earnings.
