Tasmanian tourists take home Echuca Cup

THERE would be no miracle repeat following Daryl Archard’s first Echuca Cup win in 2016.

The 2017 Echuca Cup – run and won at Echuca Racecourse yesterday – has not only left town, it has gone overseas.

With Tasmanian trainer Imogen Miller and champion jockey Brendon McCoull after their horse Tshahitsi blitzed the field in the $80,000 Moama Bowling Club Echuca Cup over 1400m.

Champion Tasmanian jockey McCoull came over for today’s ride and was returning to Tasmania this morning.
