Prince Eyeing Mornington Cup Crown

Prince Eyeing Mornington Cup Crown


Just days after his younger full-brother was sold at NZB’s Select Sale, Prince of Penzance (NZ) (Pentire) produced a terrific performance to win the Listed A$121,500 Tabcorp Mornington Cup Prelude (2000m) at Caulfield on Saturday. Trained by leading Victorian trainer Darren Weir, it was fellow Victorian trainer Henry Dwyer who purchased his full-brother (Lot 771) at the Select Sale on Thursday at Karaka for $110,000.

Prince of Penzance, a Premier Sale graduate, entered the race a winner of half of his eight career starts, and a winner at his only run over 2000m.

Starting from barrier one for rider Michelle Payne, the son of Pentire settled mid-field after fellow Karaka graduate and race-favouriteLaidback Larry (NZ) (O’Reilly) had to work hard to find the lead from an outside barrier.
