The Group 3 Liverpool City Cup was run at Warwick Farm today March 10, 2012, with Ofcourseican emerging as the dominant winner in the race.
Ofcourseican was not at all bothered by the wet track conditions, surging down the final straight to win the 2012 Liverpool Cup in front of Somepin Anypin, who placed second, and Fast Clip, who finished in third.
Trainer Ron Quinton wasn’t at all surprised by today’s result and had come into the 2012 Liverpool City Cup extremely confident.
“She’s got some of the best sectionals whenever she races,” Quinton said.
It was the first Group victory for Ofcourseican, who has won seven of her 25 race starts.
“It’s so important for her to win a Group 3,” Quinton said.
“She’s a very valuable mare anyway, but she’s more valuable now.”
The trainer will now look towards running Ofcourseican in a race such as the Group 1 The Galaxy at Randwick on April 21, 2012.
“(It’s) very exciting because she is a good galloper,” he said.
Ofcourseican was ridden by jockey Kathy O’Hara in today’s Liverpool City Cup 2012.
“At the top of the straight she just put them away,” O’Hara said.
“I’m surprised how easily she was able to run in the mud to be honest.
“She has a beautiful turn of foot and she’ll be able to win a lot of races with that.”
