Glencadam Gold has won the Group 3 Newcastle Gold Cup at Newcastle Racecourse today September 20, 2012.
The Refuse To Bend gelding has won more than $200,000 in prize money during his career and has won five of his 11 race starst.
Glencadam Gold won the race by more than a length ahead of Peal Of Bells, who finished second, and Gazza Guru, who placed third.
The four-year-old was ridden by jockey Nash Rawiller in the 2012 Newcastle Gold Cup.
Rawiller was full of praise for the Irish gelding, who had his first seven race starts in England.
“He’s been well performed over in England,” he said.
“He’ll just keep taking the next step this horse.
“He gives you a very good feel of a good horse.”
Trainer Gai Waterhouse’s stable representative, Mark Newman, felt Glendcadam Gold was on track for the Caulfield Cup 2012 and Melbourne Cup 2012 later this spring.
What he’s shown us so far is pretty good,” Newman said.
“Gai really wants to get him qualified for the Caulfield and Melbourne Cups.
“He’s a really promising galloper.
“He’s very strong on the line and I’m sure the further the better for him.”
