Col­lab­o­ra­tion nom­i­nates to de­fend Lis­more Cup

The Northern Star - - SPORT -

LAST year’s Lis­more Cup win­ner, Col­lab­o­ra­tion, is one of the 19 nom­i­na­tions for Thursday’s $60,000 Lis­more Show­case Cup (1200m).

The Joanne Hardy-trained geld­ing, a seven-year-old son of Halling, blitzed his ri­vals to win last year’s Cup by just over 10 lengths on a Heavy 8 track.

It was an amaz­ing ef­fort from the Coffs Har­bour geld­ing.

He has seven starts since run­ning 14th in the Maclean Cup at Grafton, 10th in the Sawtell Cup at Coffs Har­bour, sev­enth in the Ken Howard Cup at Coffs, 12th in the Ta­ree Cup and then sev­enth in the re­cent Tun­curry Cup over 2100m.

Scotty Be Gotti (sec­ond) and Out­strip (third) placed be­hind Col­lab­o­ra­tion in last year’s Cup and have been en­tered by their re­spec­tive Bal­lina (Stephen Lee) and Ea­gle Farm (Brad Herne) sta­bles.

Out­strip is also one of four last start win­ners nom­i­nated as well, joined by Me­te­o­rol­o­gist (Mar­cus Wil­son), One More Two More (An­drew Par­ramore) and Skytrek (Barry Lockwood).

Out­strip won over 2200m at the re­cent Mur­willum­bah Cup meet­ing, Me­te­o­rol­o­gist was suc­cess­ful at War­wick Farm on Au­gust 23, claim­ing a 2200m Bench­mark 70 while One More Two More won a 1900m Bench­mark 55 at Kempsey.

Skytrek was the first leg of a win­ning dou­ble for Ea­gle Farm-based Barry Lockwood at last week’s Bal­lina Cup meet­ing.

It was the fifth win in 22 starts for the five-year-old geld­ing son of Not a Sin­gle Doubt and part of a big day for Lockwood, who hails from Tam­worth and snared his sec­ond on the day when Cash­ing Up won the Bal­lina Cup.

Lockwood has also nom­i­nated Cash­ing Up at Lis­more, en­ter­ing the Bal­lina Cup win­ner in the $30,000 Rousil­lon Show­case Hand­i­cap (1516m), one of 11 nom­i­na­tions for one of the two main sup­port races.

The Cup meet­ing fes­tiv­i­ties be­gin Wed­nes­day night at the Rous Ho­tel in Lis­more with a Cup Cal­cutta from around 6pm.
