Banca Mo Wins 2013 Warrnambool Cup – Race Results

May 3rd, 2013

Banca Mo has taken out the 2013 Warrnambool Cup at Warrnambool Racecourse yesterday May 2, 2013.

The five-year-old won the $200,000 race by an extraordinary five lengths ahead of Muirfield, who finished second, and Shiny Buttons, who ran home for third.

Banca Mo has now won 11 of his 21 race starts and has earned more than $446,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.

Co-trainer Scott Brunton, who trains Banco Mo alongside his father David, was over the moon with the stayer’s latest race win.

“To return here today and win the Cup is out of this world,” Brunton said.

“This is an awesome carnival and Banca Mo was our big hope and he didn’t let us down.

“We set him for this and he was always looking the winner, with Ben Knobel box seating from barrier 1.

“Most blokes would buy a horse just to win the Warrnambool Cup and I can’t tell you how exciting it is for our family.”

Jockey Ben Knobel was equally ecstatic with Banca Mo’s winning 2013 Warrnambool Cup run.

“This is my biggest win,” Knobel said.

“I knew we were in the money when we straightened for home and he gave his usual big kick.

“He put a space on them in a couple of strides.”

Banca Mo was purchased for just $2,100 from the 2009 Tasmanian Magic Millions Yearling Sale.
