Speediness Wins Scone Cup 2013 – Race Results

May 17th, 2013

Speediness has won the Listed Scone Cup at Scone Racecourse today May 17, 2013.

The five-year-old looked the winner 200 metres from home, however, was almost pipped at the post by race favourite Mouro in the final moments of the race.

Mouro managed to claim second placing in today’s 2013 Scone Cup, while Kaypers finished in third position.

Speediness has now won six of his 21 race starts and has earned more than $465,000 in prize money during his career.

Trainer Colin Scott was thrilled with Speediness’ winning 2013 Scone Cup run.

“The horse did a great job,” Scott said.

“He’s a very very good horse this horse.

“When he does everything right you know, he’s right up there.

“He’s been a god send to me this horse.

“He takes a lot of work.

“The horse likes it here (at Scone). I just love it here. It’s a great place.”

Scott shot down any rumours of a Brisbane winter campaign for Speediness, and will instead set him towards the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival.

“He’ll go to the paddock now and we’ll have a crack at the spring.

“We’ll just see how he pulls up. We’ll map out where he’s going to go.”

Jockey Christian Reith was aboard Speediness for today’s 2013 Scone Cup win, making it the second time the jockey has claimed the $200,000 race.

“Second one in three years,” Reith said.

“Hopefully it becomes a habit.”

Reith felt Speediness was well deserving of winning the 2013 Scone Cup.

“He did a lot wrong (last start) and I was very confident with the gear changes today,” he said.

“The horse is in tip top shape.

“He built momentum very well and sprinted very well.”
