Cups Double for High Chaparral
Tara Madgwick - Friday, 5 May 2017
Two days, two Cups and one sire - High Chaparral (IRE).

The Listed Warrnambool Cup on Thursday went the way of Darren Weir's Irish import High Church (IRE), while the Listed Wagga Gold Cup on Friday was won by the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained Stampede, both stayers sired by ill-fated Epsom Derby winner High Chaparral.

Stampede as a yearlingA lightly raced four year-old coming out of the restricted grades, Stampede led all the way to win the 2000 metre feature by half a length.

"He's a beautiful horse and he's got a lot of ability," said winning rider Rachel King.

"He's been a touch unlucky his last couple of starts but he did everything for me - it was quite straightforward really.

"He travelled beautiful and when I looked to let a bit ofreinout at the 600 (metres) he just put them to bed."

An $80,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the Coolmore draft for Gai Waterhouse/Round Table Racing, Stampede has four wins and three seconds from eight starts with prizemoney just shy of $200,000.

Stampede is the first foal of Group I BRC Queensland Oaks runner-up Nothin' Leica Cat from the family of Group II winner I am a Ripper.

Nothin Leica Cat has a weanling colt by High Chaparral's champion son So You Think and is back in foal to him again.
