The Aus$1million Australian Cup (Aus-I) at Flemington on 8 March marked the end of a magnificent career and the emergence of a new staying superstar.
The Kelt Capital Stakes, New Zealand's richest race, was worth NZ$2 million (US $1,500,000) and was brilliantly won by Princess Coup. The mare is now headed to Australia to contest the AUS$3 million (US$2.7 million) Caulfield Cup later this month.
Australian-breds completed an unprecedented classic New Zealand double when Princess Coup stormed away to win the NZ Oaks (NZ-I) north of the nation's capital, Wellington, on March 17.
