Twenty Cambridge-trained horses attended the twilight meeting at the Ellerslie racecourse on Saturday 2nd December, which consisted of one winner, two seconds and one third.
The Stephen Marsh-trained Kings Cross picked up where he left off almost three years ago, taking out the second race on the card by one length. Kings Cross paid $5.30 to win and $1.90 to place.
Owned by Marsh and Monovale Holdings, the son of Shinko King has not been seen on a New Zealand racetrack in three years since his departure to Hong Kong, where he raced under “Power of One”.
“He never settled in Hong Kong and Joe and Max rang me and said they were going to bring him home and now we race the horse together, it’s a great result,” Marsh said.
