There will be a six-strong kiwi-bred contingent contesting Sunday’s S$1.35 million Singapore Gold Cup which will be run over the shorter distance of 2000m this year.
Ex-pat New Zealand trainer Stephen Gray has two runners sourced from New Zealand and they have drawn at opposite ends of the barriers.
Sky Rocket (Darci Brahma) has drawn gate five while stablemate Bahana who won the event in 2016, has drawn the widest of Gray’s four runners and will jump from barrier 17.
“Sky Rocket has got a good draw as he can go wherever he wants from there,” Gray said.
“As for Bahana, he can be ridden forward or back, it doesn’t matter. In any case, I’m just happy to have four horses in the Gold Cup, it’s fantastic.”
