Stawell Cup

He may not be the biggest horses and he sure doesn’t resemble his name, standing at only 16 hands, but Tall Ship is shaping into a very nice progressive stayer.

Aided by a perfect ride from Dean Yendall, the English Import blitzed his rivals in the Stawell Cup, with stable mate Count Encosta finishing in second place.

The Sea the Stars gelding, was a winner in Europe at 2200m and 2400m, before he was purchased by OTI Racing and transferred to Australia.

With a dominant Maiden Australian victory over 1700m in the Anniversary Cup at Geelong on March 22nd, Tall Shop will continue to work through the grades and distances.

His next target is likely to be the Pakenham Cup later in the month, before possibly tackling the Listed Warrnambool Cup on the final day of the illustrious carnival in May.
