Raspberries Defends Scone Cup Title in 2013

This afternoon a class field of stayers will face off in the 2013 Scone Cup including the defending champ Raspberries who trainer Peter Snowden rates as a very good chance of taking out consecutive editions of the late autumn classic.

Darley’s prolific head trainer, Snowden has enjoyed massive successive over his training career but admits he will always have a soft spot for his home town of Scone and the home cup which he has won for the past two years on the trot with Dysphonia (2011) and then Raspberries.

He returns there today with his Lonhro mare Raspberries who vies for back-to-back wins in the $200,000 Listed Scone Cup (1600m) which the now five-year-old won at the end of her prep 12 months ago.

“It always took a good horse to win the cup and was always a big day,” Snowden said reminiscing over his earlier years at the track.

“It has just got bigger and bigger with the stand-alone Saturday and more competitive.

“It is the home of [the] thoroughbred in this country and needed a meeting like this one.

“It is great for me because I get back there to see my family and friends and I always want to have a winner because I know they are following my horses.”

Last year Raspberries won the Scone Cup on the back of an unplaced run in the Rowley Mile when eighth to Star Of Octagonal and this prep she was also well beaten last start when seventh to Skyerush in the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1600m) at Randwick.

She sees the mile again here but is better suited to the Scone track and is one of the single figure fancies in the Scone Cup odds paying $8 in markets led by last start Rowley Mile champ Mouro ($5.50).

While on paper Raspberries has failed to finish better than fourth in her opening four runs this time in, Snowden has been pleased with her performances and from her nice gate nine (into eight) draw today can give the favourite a run for his money.

“She has had the four runs and they have been good and have got her ready for this race,” Snowden said.

“She has got a good gate and should get the right run if she is good enough.”
