Geegees Blackflash Wins 2012 Hobart Cup – Results

February 14th, 2012

Geegees Blackflash won the 2012 Hobart Cup at Hobart Racecourse last Sunday February 12, 2012.

The five-year-old gelding won the 2012 Hobart Cup by almost a length in front of Viking Hero and Dream Flyer.

Geegees Blackfash has now won 11 of his 34 race starts and earned more than $530,000 in prize money.

Trainer John Luttrell was thrilled with the result.

“I was just trying to look after him and make sure nothing went wrong,” Luttrell said.

“I knew how good he was and he’s brought it out and done it again today.

“He’s kept doing it week in week out. I love him to death.”

Luttrell will now take Geegees Blackflash to the Launceston Cup on February 29, 2012.

“He’ll go to the Launceston Cup now as long as the handicapper only give him a kilogram or so penalty and then he’ll go to the paddock,” Luttrell said.

Jockey Peter Merstens was aboard the horse for his 2012 Hobart Cup win.

“He’s got a brilliant turn of foot for a stayer,” said Mertens.
