Ariston takes out Bowen Cup

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

IT WAS another suc­cess­ful day both on and off the track at the Tel­stra Whit­sun­day Bowen Cup on Satur­day.

Bowen Turf Club pres­i­dent Cyril Vains said weather con­di­tions were ideal, crowd num­bers were ex­cel­lent and the stan­dard of rac­ing on the track was high.

“The rac­ing on the day pre­sented a very strong field and the class of horse was ex­tremely high for coun­try Queens­land,” he said.

The main race, the Tel­stra Whit­sun­day Bowen Cup (last race of the day) was won by num­ber 6, Ariston.

The owner/trainer and strap­per is Lyn Manzel­mann of Bris­bane, for­merly of Mackay.

The horse has now had two wins from two starts at Bowen af­ter win­ning on the same track ear­lier this year.

Mr Vains said the horse had pro­gressed rapidly through­out the year af­ter grad­u­at­ing from win­ner in its maiden race at Easter to win­ner of the Bowen Cup. The 1800m dis­tance and con­di­tions on the day suited the horse and helped it to a win. Mr Vains said the that over­all day was great and also thanked the crowd for their good be­hav­iour.

CUP WIN­NER: Bowen Cup win­ner Ariston with Robert Dykes, Ryan Lang­ford (Tel­stra Whit­sun­day), Bowen Turf Club pres­i­dent Cyril Vains, jockey Mark Usher, owner/trainer and strap­per Lyn Manzel­mann and Sue Strid­iron (Tel­stra Whit­sun­day).
