Our Toyman Wins 2010 Horsham Cup

On Saturday night the Jim Psaila-trained Our Toyman secured his first Group victory when the in-form dog took out the $28, 000 Group 2 Exchange Hotel Horsham Cup ahead of a quality field of rivals.

Son of Hallucinate out of Toy Cuthbert, Our Toyman ($6) beat home the Gary Ennis-trained Enry Walt ($7.60) by 1 ½ lengths with Hot Price ($5) a further 1 ¾ lengths back for third.

It was a disappointing finish for the clear pre-race favourite as Darren McDonald’s Launceston Cup winner Gardam Prince ($2.80) could only manage fifth six lengths away from the winner.

Our Toyman ran a sharp 26.95 over the 480m sprint, not quite as quick as when he became the fastest qualifier in the heats last week in a blistering 26.78, but still fast enough to claim his fifth consecutive victory – the 14th from his 38 career starts.
