Dubbo Gold Cup day blows away expectations The City Of Dubbo Turf Club is ecstatic with the results of SundayÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢s Gold Cup race meeting which has set a positive platform for the next two big days on VRC Derby Day and Melbourne Cup Day. A near record betting turnover for the Club, an attendance of almost 3000, wonderful support from sponsors, fantastic weather and quality racing ensured a very successful day that exceeded expectations. The feature event was the XXXX Gold Dubbo Gold Cup and once again Randwick trainer Graeme Rogerson claimed a country trophy when Cash Carter added the Dubbo Cup to his Goulburn Cup earlier in the year with an emphatic victory in the $40,000 event. Ridden by RogersonÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢s inform apprentice Peter Wells, Cash CarterÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢s win was a comfortable one defeating Winbreaker and Wicked Wizard while local hero Juerga finished fourth. While the Cup was the feature race there is little doubt the highlight for the locals on the day was the brilliant return to racing of DubboÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢s star sprinter King Rex. The 2005 Ramornie Handicap winner was heavily supported in the ring and ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã…Â“RexÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â, piloted by local apprentice Brooke McFadden, didnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢t let the locals down as he cruised to victory in the Elders Dubbo Dash and was greeted by a wonderful reception from the locals upon returning to the yard. There was plenty of glamour on course thanks to the outstanding Fashions On The Field promotion by Orana Mall while Stacey Powton from Parkes was the most excited person on course after being the lucky gate prize winner and taking home a $5500 diamond ring courtesy of Everly Leading Edge Jewellers. On Cup eve the South Dubbo Tavern hosted a highly successful Gold Cup Calcutta that saw a final pool of almost $13,000 and set a positive scene for the following days activities.
