In Saturday’s Group 3 Christchurch New Zealand Cup the favourite galloper My Scotsgrey ran home to victory in front of an army of enthusiastic supporters.
He was ridden by Leith Innes and this win marked a hat-trick of wins for the horse.
The race did not go entirely to plan as Innes was further down the field than he would have liked, but he managed to get away from the main group of horses at the right moment and make his way to front.
My Scotsgrey is trained by Shaun Ritchie who has always thought that he was an excellent 2 mile horse.
Being only a 4 year old he has a great future ahead of him.
The Christchurch Casino New Zealand is a prestigious race, sponsored by the Christchurch Casino. The betting was intense, with My Scotsgrey proving a worthy favourite.
