Yulalona Wins Summer Cup 2011 – Rosehill Results

January 3rd, 2012

Four-year-old Yulalona won the 2011 Summer Cup at Rosehill Racecourse in Sydney last Monday December 26, 2011.

The Peter Snowden-trained gelding won the race by 1.3 lengths after finishing sixth against a similar field in the Listed Christmas Cup on December 10.

Yulalona has now won five of his 17 career starts and has earned more than $285,000 in prize money.

The Dubai Destination gelding was paying odds of $8 to win the 2011 Summer Cup at Luxbet.

Jockey Kerrin McEvoy was aboard the horse for his Summer Cup 2011 win.

“I gave him a couple of taps on the left-hand side which got him thinking again and he ran the trip out really well today,” McEvoy said.

“The horse raced in a new bit today which Peter and the team have been tinkering with and he relaxed nicely and did it well.”

Snowden was relieved that Yulalona could notch up another win after his unlucky sixth in the Christmas Cup.

“Nothing went right for him last start,” Snowden said.

“Today there was a more genuine speed and aided by a gun ride he was just too good.”

“He can sustain a run. If you think back to his (Queensland) Derby run, he drew barrier 19 and it took him six or seven furlongs to get across.

“Then he pulled the whole way so it was a very, very tough run. He can run a trip.”

Yulalona’s next race may well be the Gosford Cup on January 12, 2012.

“The Gosford Cup could be next,” his trainer said.

“If he pulls up all right we’ll think about that race.”
