Libran Up To His Best in The Emirates Melbourne Cup

8th November, 2017

While Tuesday brought about a day of mixed emotions for many with the passing of Regal Monarch, the day was some what brightened by the effort of Libran in the 2017 Emirates Melbourne Cup as he ran up to his very best to finish eighth under a brilliant ride from Dwayne Dunn to the delight of owners who had travelled from far and wide to be in attendance on this special day. 

Chris Waller was thrilled with the effort, commenting to say, "he certainly did us all proud. He was given a nice ride by Dwayne Dunn and he made up good ground in the straight and in my opinion he ran very well". "It is great to be part of history and he certainly picked up good prize money". Chris will now target Libran towards the 2018 Sydney Cup where we hope to find more genuine tracks in Sydney compared to this year's autumn carnival. "He is a genuine Sydney Cup horse and he would have been this year had we had a better track. We have a horse that is one of the top stayers in the world and the Sydney Cup is clearly a much easier race providing he gets a better surface next year."
