Rugged Cross Wins Listed Winter Stakes
At Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, former Darley shuttler Cape Cross (Green Desert-Park Appeal, by Ahonoora) added a black-type success when 6YO UK-bred gelding Rugged Cross (Cape Cross-Lunda, by Soviet Star) scored by 0.1-length for trainer Chris Waller in the $100,000 Listed Winter Stakes (1400m) for 3YO+, over 6YO mare Two Blue (Dubleo-Blue Booty, by Personal Flag) & 4YO gelding Wouldn't It Be Nice (Choisir-Mia Cat Dancer, by Tactical Cat). This was the first stakes victory for Rugged Cross who took his record to 6 wins and 10 placings (including the Gr3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup & Gr3 NJC Cameron Handicap) from 20 starts for $395,828 earnings.
