Tribute to Baron Alco’s vic­tory in the BetVic­tor Gold Cup

TRAINER Gary Moore had to be talked into run­ning Baron Alco in the BetVic­tor Gold Cup — but it paid off with a gutsy win.

The seven-year-old put in an ex­cel­lent round of jump­ing to win with some­thing left in the tank.

Moore said: “Thank good­ness the own­ers talked me into run­ning him. The horse is all heart. I was go­ing to take him out, as I thought the ground was quick enough.”

It was a fam­ily af­fair with son Jamie in the sad­dle. The de­lighted trainer added: “They are made for each other.

“Jump­ing is what won him the race. They are both very bold and they just kept out of the way.”
