The 2013 QTC Cup took place at Eagle Farm Racecourse on Saturday June 1, 2013, with Galah walking away with the prize.
Galah won the race by nose ahead of Conservatorium, who finished second, and Griffon, who rounded out the placings in third.
The Redoute’s Choice entire has now won five of his 17 race starts and has earned more than $488,000 in prize money during his career.
Prior to Saturday’s 2013 QTC Cup win, Galah placed eighth by two lengths to Platelet in the Group 1 The Goodwood at Morphettville Racecourse first-up this preparation.
Galah was paying odds of $5.50 to win the 2013 Queensland Guineas at bookmaker.com.au.
Trainer Peter Snowden was there to see Galah win his first race since October 2011, when he won the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes.
“Galah was one of our better three-year-olds but his form went off,” Snowden said.
“It has been a while since he has won but the fact is this race was there for him to win.”
Galah will now go on towards the Listed Glasshouse Handicap at the Sunshine Coast on June 29, 2013.
“That is the right race for him. He is the type of horse who likes to race on the fresh side and the Caloundra race will suit him,” Snowden said.
