A good crowd attended the running of the 123rd Gold Cup at the Parkes Jockey Club on Sunday.
The feature race over 1,600m, the Parkes Services Gold Cup, was won by a Wagga- based horse, Leucura trained by Chris Heywood and ridden by the premier county jockey Greg Ryan. The prize money totalled $25,000.
The other main race, the Parkes Services Satellite Handicap was won by Heza Thief for Cowra-based trainer Ken Parsons.
