Rock The Country, winner of the Breeders Champions CUp on Sunday, was led in by his trainer Gokhan Terzi with Gengis and Ufuk Goksel. Apprentice Wesley Marwing had the ride. The race was not entirely without incident. Captain’s Tiger was withdrawn by the vet at the start. Copper Bay was slow out of the stalls and then refused to gallop. Orbit War, Demitasse and Gentle Brook filled the minor placings – all carrying less than 54 kgs. The pedometer reading was 22.
