The Marc Quinn stable will head to the local Port Macquarie jockey club race meeting on Sunday, 15th of June where the weather is fine and a track condition of a heavy eight has been issued.
Marc will supply one runner in the feature event of the day, in the Wauchope RSL Club - Wauchope Cup over 1500m with Storm Ahead wearing saddlecloth 11 with Andrew Adkins aboard jumping from barrier one, in a field of 11.
Storm Ahead is a six-year-old Bay gelding, and is having his first start for the Marc Quinn yard, with career start number 41with a tale of the tape reading five wins and 15 placings on record with prize-money of just over $60,000.
Storm Ahead has been in consistent form lately with recent runs including a third of 13 at Tamworth over 1200 m on a good three and was a last start winner at Armidale late May over 1400m in a benchmark 60 with Andrew Adkins aboard finishing two lengths in front of their nearest rival in a field of 10.
Good luck to connections with their runner in the Cup.
