  • Cruz too good. Our boys do us proud.
    The 2019 New Zealand Trotting Cup belonged to the All Stars and Blair Orange as their least favoured runner Cruz Bromac proved too strong over the last 100m for pre-post favourite Spankem. In a driving finish, Cruz Bromac got up for a neck victory for Orange, giving him his first win in the great race. Classie Brigade did a superb job getting up for third, beaten just a length after being late clearing traffic, while perhaps the run of the race was Henry Hubert in finishing 6th, but under two lengths from the winner at the line.
