Cintiarna with Sandra and Tom Collins after winning the Cranbourne Cup.
DECISION PROVES A MASTERSTROKE
A 30 year drought was broken when Cintiarna won the Cranbourne Cup on Monday night, handing Gippsland owner/trainer Sandra Collins her first ever win at Group level.
Cintiarna, a daughter of Bombastic Shiraz and Hello Sienna, led virtually all the way to stun punters and win at odds of $18.30 by three lengths over Peter Hunt’s Gold Town and the fast finishing Destini Fireball in the spectacular time of 29.93sec over the 520m journey.
