Alassak wins on Ipswich Cup Day

Jun 21, 2016

Murphy Racing travelled to Ipswich on Cup Day to contest the Two Year Old Handicap with impressive Shaft gelding, Alassak. David sent Alassak to the water walker at Kilto Park for four days after his last run and with all the southerners gone home he thought this would be the perfect race. 

David's plan was brought into fruition with Alassak jumping from barrier 4 with Tegan Harrison aboard she settled him nicely in 3rd and rounding the home turn she got stuck into him and finished across the line in first by the narrowest of margins to hold up the heavily backed Happy Event and race favourite Sir Donald.

Congratulations to the Proudmans on their second win with this horse. His career prizemoney no exceeds $50,000
