The 2010 David Jones Cup results continued a habit on this year’s Caulfield Cup Day of exceptional performances in the final stretch.
However, despite Purple and Zoomin rocketing forward in the run home, it was 7 year old gelding Ginga Dude who took the race in a dominating performance. After missing out on a Caulfield Cup run, Ginga Dude had to prove that passing him over was a mistake. He did just that by keeping the lead for almost the entire race, running the whole 2000 metres.
Purple put in a tremendous effort in the final straight, but the odds-on favourite could not beat out Ginga Dude. Zoomin was also very impressive, yet without a chance to take the lead in the home stretch, and getting blocked at a pivotal moment that might have otherwise allowed him to take second place.
