Bendigo Cup Heats And Goldrush Maiden Preview

The fabulous Bendigo Goldrush Carnival goes in to full swing tonight on the fourth night of racing with four semi finals of the Rocky Ridge Farm Goldrush Maiden and, in stark contrast to last years ordinary turnout; there is eight heats of the Group 2 2009 $26,000 to the winner MTD Bendigo Cup.

Of course despite the weak numbers last years running of the Bendigo Cup started the fabulous run of wins for champion sprinter El Galo, when he went within a .5 of a length of erasing Slater’s Bendigo 430m Track Record and went on to annex the first of four Country Cups that year.

The history making didn’t end with the Bendigo Cup either as last year’s Goldrush Maiden winner, Uncrushable suffered a set back toward the end of last year but has now won 12 of 26 starts and career prizemoney of $38,450; and looked like she was back to her best with an impressive 25.35 last start best of night win at Geelong for trainer Cameron Bahen.
