Crossthestart ready to take next step

Jul 17, 2009

Cape Cross gelding Crossthestart is set to tackle his toughest test on Saturday when he lines up in the Listed Tattersalls Mile at Eagle Farm. 

He tackles the race with the perfect lead up having won his last two starts at Ipswich and Eagle Farm when storming home down the outside.

Top Queensland jockey Jim Byrne will again ride Crossthestart having ridden him for his last two wins.  Good luck to owner Dick Karreman.

In other news, Benelli will run at Caulfield on Saturday over 1800m.  Coming off his gutsy second in the Winter Championship Final two weeks ago, Benelli continues to work well at home and looks a great chance to add another win to his already impressive record.

Good luck to owners Michael Manion and Jenny Laming.
