Midnight Martini Wins Cranbourne Cup 2012 – Race Results

October 18th, 2012

Midnight Martini has won the Listed Cranbourne Cup at Cranbourne Racecourse last Sunday October 14, 2012.

The five-year-old won the race by an extraordinary three lengths in front of Streets Away, who finished second, and Streaky Fella, who placed in third.

Midnight Martini has now won six of her 17 race starts and has earned more than $315,000 in prize money.

Trainer Mark Kavanagh was thrilled with the 2012 Cranbourne Cup win after the race.

“She’s a talented mare and it’s good to see her back flying,” Kavanagh said.

“The blinkers on made a difference and she really sprinted away from them in a good return to form.

Midnight Martini will go on towards the Group 2 Matriarch Stakes at Flemington on Npvember 10, 2012.

“She’s back flying now but certainly the Matriarch (Stakes), we’ll be targeting that,” Kavanagh said.

“This horse was specked to go into the Cups last year and she did break down in the Lexus so it’s great to have her back.”

Midnight Martini was paying odds of $9 to win the 2012 Cranbourne Cup at bookmaker.com.au.

Race favourite Vatuvei, who was paying odds of $5 to win the race, finished 4.75 lengths behind Midnight Martini in eighth position.
