Sunday’s victory in the $80,000 Wang Cup was his 6th win since
claiming a Benchmark 64 at Echuca this time last year. His only
unplaced run in that time was a close fourth in November’s Wodonga Cup.
apprentice Mitch Aitken settled Entre Nous in fourth spot and then
overhauled last-start Albury Mile winner Ashdam to score by over a
length. “He drew wide of the middle so we left it up to Mitch and he
did a great job,” Egan said. “We knew the horse was above average after
Wodonga and we’re over the moon!
“He was backing up after
winning at Moonee Valley and finding suitable races will be harder from
now on. We could target the Swan Hill carnival in June.”
Nous is the first of three foals by Greta West Stud sire King Of Prussia
from Madam Delia (Demus). The mare won 8 races including the 2009
Towong Cup for Elkington. Her second foal Magic Monarch won a Wodonga
maiden on Boxing Day and she also has a filly on the ground from
King Of Prussia (Anabaa) is one of the stalwarts of
the Victorian industry having retired to Greta West in 2003. His 3yo
filly Prussian Vixen just missed completing a hat-trick at Moonee Valley
on March 18 but can bounce back in the Super VOBIS 3YO Hcp (1200m) at
Mornington this Saturday.
