Amovatio Wins Gr3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup
At Hawkesbury in Sydney, Emirates Park Stud stallion Al Maher added a black-type success when 5YO gelding Amovatio (Al Maher-Grand Ovation, by Scenic) scored by 0.5-length for trainer Chris Waller in the $200,000 Gr3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m) for 3YO+, over 6YO gelding Mighty Lucky (Casino Prince-Buxom Babe, by Octagonal) & 5YO mare Casino Dancer (Casino Prince-Nine Covers, by Twining). Amovatio, who was an $85,000 purchase by Spicer Thoroughbreds at the 2012 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Edinburgh Park, took his record to 9 wins (including the Listed Winter Championship Series Final) and 13 placings (including the Gr3 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap) from 35 starts for $818,415 earnings.
