AN INTERSTATE trip is part of the long term scheduled with last night’s Tabcorp Park Menangle winner Cash N Flow.
Thrilled with Cash N Flow’s performance in the Group Two Bulli Cup, trainer Craig Cross revealed his plans for the gelding, which include crossing the border.
Along with aiming for the Len Smith Mile in Menangle on June 30, Cross is looking to head north with the son of Mach Three.
Cross has set his sights on the Sunshine Sprint at Albion Park on July 13 and The Blacks A Fake a week later.
The Blacks A Fake is the last leg of the 2018/19 Grand Circuit.
“He won’t race again for a couple of weeks with the J D Watts Memorial at Menangle the next race for him,” Cross said.
“If he keeps racing well enough we will aim at the Len Smith Mile before going to Queensland for the Winter Carnival.”
Driven by Todd McCarthy, Cash N Flow began quickly to lead from barrier two as Ellmers Image occupied the ‘death seat’.
With McCarthy stealing a break at the top of the home stretch, Cash N Flow was able to stave off a determined Ellmers Image to score by a half-neck, with Salty Robyn three-and-a-half metres away third.
Covering the mile in 1:51, the lightly-raced six-year-old took his record to 15 wins and eight placings from 38 starts for earnings of $241,041.
“He went really well. I’m very happy with him,” Cross said. “He drew well and had been working great so I was quite confident he could upset them.
“He seems to like mile racing better and from the draw the race suited him.”
