Prince powers away for strong Cup Day win

Jan 24, 2018

Melbourne Cup day celebrations continued well into the afternoon for connections of Jacaranda Price, who broke his maiden status with authority on the Sunshine Coast today. 

The well-bred son of More Than Ready had signalled a win wouldn't be far off with an eye-catching fourth at Gatton at his previous start - his first for Billy and Dale since joining their stable from Sydney. 

Leading jockey Damian Browne bided his time at the back of the field, allowing Jacaranda Prince to find a nice rhythm, before angling out at the top of the straight and rounding up his competitors with a strong winning burst. 

Browne was impressed with the performance and gave Jacaranda Prince a good wrap upon dismount.
