Tasmania Hosts Stakes Race Treble
This afternoon a trio of stakes races will be held at Mowbray Racecourse in Launceston. Headed by the Gr3 Launceston Cup (2400m), the card also features the Listed Mowbray Stakes (1600m) & Listed Gold Sovereign (1200m). Pretty Punk will be looking to make it back to back Cups after winning the Hobart Cup earlier this month for trainers Leon Macdonald & Andrew Guyas, and is appealingly priced at $4.80. The John Sadler-trained Victorian raider Berisha is vying for favouritism, along with the heavily supported Darren Weir-trained Andrea Mantegna and his stablemate Bondeiger.
