Mornington Cup 2012 On Sea Galleon’s Radar – Preview

January 5th, 2012

The Listed Mornington Cup is scheduled to run at Mornington Racecourse on Wednesday February 15, 2012.

Worth $200,000 in prize money, the Mornington Cup  2012 is open to horses of all ages.

The 2012 Mornington Cup is run over 2,400 metres and is run under handicap conditions.

The race takes place on Mornington Cup Day and shares its day with the Listed Hareeba Stakes and the $250,000 Inglis Premier.

Last year’s Christmas Cup winner Sea Galleon may be aimed at the Mornington Cup 2012 in order to pass the first Caulfield Cup qualifying clause.

“I think he could become a Caulfield Cup horse,” said co-trainer Cindy Alderson.

“He races best when the pressure is on all the way and that’s usually the story in the Caulfield Cup.

“Now I have to work out a way to get him up the (ballot) list.”

Sea Galleon has won five of his 20 horse racing starts and has earned more than $230,000 in prize money.

Last year’s Mornington Cup was won by Guyno.
