Nationals Champ To Contest Tedesco Menswear Chairman’s Cup

The field for Saturday’s Tedesco Menswear Chairman’s Cup over 720m at takes on a new look with the inclusion of the 2010 National Distance Champion Blue Lorian.

With insufficient nominations for heats and the invitation for fresh nominations closing today, this race is now a straight out Best 8 NG event.

Saturday’s box draw for this 3 event which carries a winner’s purse of $15,000, is reproduced below.

Owner trainer Peter Whye initially intended to miss this race, to allow Blue Lorian a break from racing, but has had a change of plans.

The NSW is delighted with the quality of the field.

“We were disappointed that we could not conduct heats as programmed but the eventual result is an outstanding final – and to have the National Distance Champion included is a most pleasing outcome,” GBOTA Deputy Executive Officer Jeff Browne said.

“We were delighted to make special presentations last week at Wentworth Park to connections of our NSW champions Blue Lorian and , to congratulate them on their outstanding achievements.

“To have Blue Lorian back at the track this week to contest the Chairman’s Cup gives the race a new flavour.

“Group race winner is there after a decisive victory last week and the promising staying prospect Devine Nation is added to the mix after an impressive win at The Gardens last – an exciting final beckons,” Browne concluded.

Gates open at 5.30 pm on Saturday with the first race at 7.27 pm. The Chairman’s Cup goes as race 8 on the ten race program at 9.57 pm.
