ARCTIC Grey has earned a shot at this month’s Wodonga Gold Cup after scoring an upset win at Albury yesterday.

The Kevin Hanley-trained galloper was having his third run from a spell and defied his double figure odds of $15 to score a stunning win with in-form hoop Simon Miller aboard.

Hanley said he was quietly confident heading into the $15,000 Benchmark 60 Handicap (1400m) as Arctic Grey approached peak fitness.

“It was a gutsy win with 59.5kilograms and Simon had to work on him the whole trip,” Hanley said.

“He had been working up to a win and his first two runs this preparation were pretty good over unsuitable trips.

“His pet distance is probably a mile and beyond and today was his first win over 1400metres.

“But by winning today his rating will go up, and although it is a significant rise in class he can now go around in the Wodonga cup over a mile.”

Arctic Grey was formerly trained in Toowoomba before joining the Hanley stable two years ago.

The six-year-old grey has an affinity with his home track, with five of his seven career victories at Albury.

Miller was close to last turning for home before angling four and five wide in the home straight.

Arctic Grey never looked a winning chance until the final 50 metres where he sprouted wings to get up in the final bound over Marble Prince ($12) by a short half-head.

“Simon told me many moons ago that this horse would never win another race,” he said.

“That was six wins ago and it shows you how good of judges jockeys are.”

Cowra-based jockey Michael Traver claimed riding honours with a double aboard Manselton and Off The Rocker.
