Krusty Hot in the Hot 100 Guineas
Breednet - Media Release - Monday, 10 July 2017
gavelhouse Australia graduate Krusty recorded a dramatic victory on Saturday in the Hot 100 Guineas on day one of the Darwin Cup Carnival at Fannie Bay.

Krusty - Bradley Photos Sold on account of trainer Joe Pride in April, the progressive three year old Krusty had been racing in consistent good form as a Sydney metro-winning son of Sebring and attracted plenty of interest from several bidders.

Flemington-based trainer Stephen Brown struck the final blow to secure Krusty at $75,000 with a view of targeting the Darwin Carnival and Saturday's win was his second run under his new ownership group having finished third a fortnight earlier.

Krusty has returned prizemoney of $49,250 to his new connections to date and now heads to the Northern Territory Derby and potentially the Darwin Cup. 

A clean sweep in the Guineas, Derby and Cup would see him become the third horse to take out the Ladbrokes Triple Crown, worth another $100,000 to connections if successful.

"We thought we would get the best out of Krusty as a four year old, but the fact he is now a chance of winning the Triple Crown is exciting.

"On today's effort, it shouldn't be a problem when he steps up to 2000m," commented Elisha Brown when interviewed by the Darwin Turf Club on behalf of the stable.
