Survived manages another victory in Mt Gambier Cup

Survived has made it three-straight victories in the Mt Gambier Cup for Ballarat trainer Archie Alexander.

And the eight-year-old galloper’s success on Monday was his most dominant in the race.

Survived only managed narrow margins in his first two wins in the feature, but had close to five lengths to spare in his most recent triumph.

Formerly raced in New Zealand, Survived had his first start for Alexander in the listed Golden Mile at Bendigo in March of 2016. Since then, the son of Zed has won four races for Alexander, three of which have been the Mt Gambier Cup.

Survived is a past group 1 winner in New Zealand and has picked up close to $500,000 from his 11 career successes.

Meanwhile, local trainer Matt Cumani is eyeing the Pakenham Cup with Ballarat Cup third place-getter Grey Lion. The horse is among the entries for Saturday’s $250,000 race.
