Spanish Vixen eyes Great Western cup

GREAT WESTERN - Talented five year old mare Spanish Vixen will carry the hopes of Stawell with her into tomorrow's Seppelt Salinger Great Western Cup.

If the cup is to stay 'home' then Spanish Vixen must salute in the 2014 Seppelt Salinger Great Western Cup.

Spanish Vixen trained by Paul Jones and has been in reasonably good form leading up to the event.

"She's been doing a good job," Jones said.

"Most of the time she's racing with no luck so if she finds some luck that will be interesting."

The mare won her last start at Penola so she will head into the cup in winning form.

"It was good to get her to Penola and give her a bit of a run before the cup," Jones said.

Jones was content with Spanish Vixen's from going into tomorrow's race, but said her results were likely to be affected by her barrier draw.

"If she draws a reasonable gate, she should run a pretty good race. She'll need some luck though," he said.

Jones was excited about the Great Western Cup and said it was good for the Great Western community.

"It's not far to go for a great little meeting," he said.

"The Great Western Racing committee do a great job organising the event so I am more than happy to support them."

The 2014 Seppelt Salinger Great Western Cup will be over 1850 metres and will be contested at 4.40pm tomorrow.

The total prize money for the event has also increased to $15,000 which organisers hope with help improve racing fields and crowd numbers.
