GREY LION super Runner-up in G2 Brisbane Cup

A fantastic second place finish was the result of Ammerland-bred GREY LION in today's Brisbane Cup in Eagle Farm, Australia. The Galileo-son, who is in training with Matthew Smith for an owner syndicate headed by Oti Racing, continues in top form and confirmed his most recent wins in the Japan Plate and the Lord Mayors Cup with a strong performance in this AUS$400,000 group 2 challenge over 2400 m. With his steady companion Kathy O'Hara in the saddle, GREY LION looked like the winner for a moment but had to succumb to the G1-placed Sixties Groove by a bit more than half a lenght at the post.
