Top Pedigree Wins Out Again
14 Oct 2012

An international pedigree was to the fore at Hawera when Gold Cape added to her record.

She won the fifth race of her career when she struck early in a new preparation for trainer John Wheeler.

The Cape Cross mare had run second when resuming and impressively went one beter on Saturday.

“I thought she’d run well first-up and she’s a pretty good mare,” Wheeler said.

Part-owned by Rex Fell, Gold Cape is out of the unraced Irish-bred Casting For Gold.

She is a three-quarter sister to the Gr 2 Gimcrack Stakes winner and sire Mujtahid.

Gold Cape is also a half-sister to winners in France, Hong Kong and Australia.

She currently holds a nomination for the Gr 3 New Zealand Cup.
