Eraset storms away with Sale Cup


Eraset maintained his impressive winning strikerate by adding a provincial cup to his record by prevailing in the $152,600 Eastcoast Plumbtec Sale Cup (1600m) on Sunday.

Ridden by Glen Boss, Eraset raced in a midfield position after starting from the outside barrier.

Tracking the Patinack Farm-owned Tagus into the race on the home bend, Eraset came away from the rail to finish in a hurry over the top of Lakedro who boxed-on bravely from her on-pace position.

Eraset ($11) won by the widening margin of 1-3/4 lengths ahead of Lakedro ($13) with Tagus ($7) attacking the line with some vigour into third placing.

Impressive last start Echuca winner Vesper ($2.80 fav) finished fourth ahead of Work The Room ($6.50) who appeared to get too far out of its ground before the home turn and then found difficulty in obtaining a clear run in the straight.

Eraset has now won three times from four starts over the mile with his overall record at six wins from 11 outings. The Danny O’Brien-trained galloper took his prizemoney is beyond the $200,000 mark.

“He looked really ready to race in the parade ring and he ran the mile out very strong,” Boss said.

"He got into a good spot and I felt like I was going to win the race a long way from home.

"I've watched this horse for a long time now and he's obviously got a great turn off foot,” he added.

By Reset, Eraset is out of Catrail mare This Era who is a daughter of Caulfield Cup winner Imposera.

She is also a half-sister to the stakes placed Tristera who is in turn the dam of Spring Champion Stakes winner Teranba.
