Fast Future Wins 2011 Launceston Cup

The Russell Cameron-trained Victorian raider Fast Future scored an upset win in the $225,000 Group 3 Launceston Cup (2400m) this afternoon beating home a quality field in the final group race of the Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival.

The eight-year-old Generous gelding showed none of his age and improved greatly on their last start ninth in the Hobart Cup, Fast Future today advantaging from their barrier one draw in Launceston Race 7.

On the line Fast Future had a length to spare over White Yard who just beat home fellow Launceston Cup roughie Geegees Blackflash in a photo finish for the minor placings.

Michael Moroney’s Abitofado was the early leader after spearing across the field from their wide barrier 13, holding on to finish a credible fourth.

One of the top fancies, Dream Pedlar, had a lovely run third on the outside of Abitofadoo and Wallis throughout but faded in the final stages.

Abitofado held the lead until the final turn when on the home straight many of the backrunners moved up to challenge.

Fast Future was ridden to perfection by Jamie Mott, coming up hard and fast on the outside while eventual third placgetter Geegees Blackflash was also given a gun run on the straight moving up on the inside.

Favourite in the Launceston Cup, Bid Spotter was never a threat while second favourite Red Buttons had no luck getting caught three wide throughout.

Fast Future has now won eight of their 52 career starts, today’s Launceston Cup prize money elevating their total career earnings to over $490,000.

Today’s Launceston Cup meet brings the Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival to a close for another year.

But the action of the Melbourne and Sydney Autumn Racing Festivals are just heating up.

The next big autumn feature is the $1 million Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield this Saturday so head to Luxbet for all the latest odds!
