BLAST FROM THE PAST


1992 NZ CUP: Miscellaneous

The four Roy & Barry Purdon trained horses finished 3rd (Christopher Vance), 5th (Insutcha), 6th (Two Under) and 10th (Sogo) behind the Addington idol, Blossom Lady.

The official count of the Cup-day crowd at Addington was 18,822, compared with 18,477 the previous year.

On-Course betting of $2,058,117 was up $64,539. Off-Course betting of $2,532,955 was down $254,441.

A good humoured crowd enjoyed a wide range of entertainment during the long intervals between races. After an early-risers' champagne breakfast set the scene on a day favoured by warm, dry weather, popular attractions included a lucky ticket competition, police-dog and police-horse displays, the opening heat of the Trans-Tasman Axemen's Challenge and a variety of performances by the Face People Theatre Company and other musical artists.
