Country Cup Dominance Continues

Ballarat trainer Darren Weir dominance of the Victorian ‘Country Cup’s’ continued with Chord dominant victory in the Colac Cup. In the last 12 months, ‘Weiry’ he has won the Bendigo Cup (Puissance De Lune), Mildura Cup (Lord Of Brazil), Kyneton Cup (Streets Away), Ararat Cup (Clang And Bang), Heywood & Warracknabeal Cups (Shiny Buttons) and Woodford Cup with Hurdy Gurdy Man, who also gave his trainer his fourth Hobart Cup. Ridden to perfection by Dean Yendall, who also won the Colac Cup 12 months earlier, Chord romped home by just over three lengths, giving ‘Weiry’, the leading Victorian Country trainer for 8 of the past 9 years, his first win in the $50,000 feature. The win also completed a very successful weekend for Victoria’s leading trainer/jockey combination. Earlier in the day they combined to win the ‘Maidens’ with General Amour and Annotator. Two days earlier at Donald, they combined for a quartet of victories – Reddamour, Some Target, Nine Carat Rock and Sutanoc.
