Bagman Wins 2012 Balaklava Cup – Race Results

September 6th, 2012

Bagman has won the 2012 Balaklava Cup at Balaklava Racecourse, which was run yesterday September 5, 2012.

The Easy Rocking gelding won the Listed Balaklava Cup by half a length ahead of Road Warrior, who placed second, and Light Tan, who finished third.

Bagman has now won nine of his 28 race starts and has earned more than $255,000 in prize money.

The six-year-old appears set for spring glory this season after also posting a gallant third placing in the Listed Penny Edition Stakes behind Southern Speed at Morphettville first-up.

Trainer Mark Kavanagh is confident that Bagman will continue his winning form into the spring racing carnival.

“This was his sort of race, it was a bit risky taking him 10 days between runs from the Penny Edition, but this was our goal and hopefully it’s onwards and upwards,” Kavanagh said.

“He’s come right on, he was looking for the mile and may even get 1800m now.

“We’ll have a good chat with (jockey) Brad (Rawiller) and work out a plan, we’ll probably go to the Tokyo City Cup then possibly over to Victoria.”

Brad Rawiller was on board Bagman for his 2012 Balaklava Cup win and is set to partner the gelding into the spring.

The jockey was clearly impressed with Bagman’s performance in the 2012 Balaklava Cup.

“These types of races are never easy to win, you’ve still got to get out and do it, and he was the best horse in it,” Rawiller said.
