Tadmore Buckshot Wins Potts Park Cup

Simon Ma’s exciting black dog Tadmore Buckshot further secured his impressive stranglehold over the 2009/10 series of the GRNSW Country Challenge last Saturday night when he claimed a smart victory in the Potts Park Cup $4000 to-the-winner final.

A very open field of six runners, following the scratching of Jug Storm and Archie Kane, contested the Potts Park leg of the GRNSW Country Challenge.

After jumping away well from box three, Tadmore Buckshot ($4.50), who also won the Dapto Final leg of the series, cruised to a 5 ½ length victory ahead of the Geoffrey Greville-trained Stun Gun ($4) with Our Miss Vane a mere neck back for third.

Ma’s other runner Tadmore Lyndee ($6) followed in fourth ahead of the odds-on favourite Rema’s Abrasive ($2.50) who failed to fire in the final finding her box seven draw too difficult and finishing a distant 9 ½ lengths away from the winner.

The speedy Tadmore Buckshot (Tadmore Gunshot x Jillabong) ran a sharp 29.99 over the 530m feature for his 16th win from 53 career starts.

He now sits at the top of the Leaderboard for the current GRNSW Country Challenge with 34 points ahead of Future Fund on 24 and Mighty Albert on 22.
