Did anyone go to the Auckland Cup at Ellerslie today?
It was a great race, unfortunately it was won by the Australian horse Maguire, ridden by Australian jockey Scott Seamer.
My pick, Blanchard, was running twice the speed of all the others at the end, but was too late, finishing 4th. I still haven't won an Auckland Cup yet, my best effort being Second Coming, which ran 2nd to Able Master in 2000.
Ah well, I won the Melbourne Cup and Caulfield Cup...You can't win them all I suppose...
