On Sunday Scapolo defied the odds by winning the Poverty Bay Cup carrying the allocated 69kg which is almost certainly the highest weight allocated for a New Zealand flat race in recent years.
It is probably the biggest weight since Rough Habit carried 71.5kg when winning a graduation open 1200m at New Plymouth in August 2014.
Danielle Hirini claimed 3kg on Scapolo in the benchmark rating 85 1600m with a rating of 103.
The Kevin Myers trained 6yo gelding, Scapolo, has now won 15 races, had previously tackled the Group I Telegraph at Trentham and was runner-up in the Stewards’ Stakes at Riccarton with 60.5kg.
