2015 Devonport Cup Belongs to Ted Medhurst’s Dark Vito

Dark Vito has produced an enormous run to take out the Three Cup over 452 metres. 

Beginning well from box two, the -trained sprinter was outpaced early by the classy (box eight), which assumed the lead soon after box rise on Tuesday afternoon.

Sitting on the leader’s heels, Dark Vito stuck to the rail for most of the trip before switching to the outside around the home turn, issuing a stern challenge to the front-runner.

Once the leading pair straightened, Dark Vito unleashed a powerful finishing burst to sprint past Senor Slamma to score by one length in a quick 25.25.

Senor Slamma held on for second, three-quarters of a length ahead of a fast-finishing (box five), another from Medhurst’s kennel.

Dark Vito, a son of and Carlita Bale, has won 10 races from 19 starts with four minor placings. The victory was his sixth in succession and there is no doubt he is destined for a bright future.
