Another cup on Surpass’ agenda

Surpass will be given the opportunity to complete back-to-back Group Three wins and is then likely to be sent for a break.

The stayer returned from Australia to run away with the Waikato Gold Cup and is a confirmed starter in the Gr.3 Scot Thrust City of Auckland Cup at Ellerslie on New Year’s Day.

“He came back in great order and Chad (Ormsby) applied the polish,” Ballymore Stables’ New Zealand racing manager Nick Fairweather said.

“Only two runs were planned so he might go for a bit of a break after the City of Auckland Cup.”
