12/04/02 Cup Yes, Bonus No for Cox at Albury
Leading Wodonga trainer Brian Cox has proven that numbers are the key when one of his three runners in today's $56,000 Carlton Draught Albury Gold Cup in New South Wales.

With Mathew Cahill in the saddle, it was the better performed of the three Cox representatives, Ekalaka that proved a mile too good.

At the end of the 2000 metre race the gelding had spaced his opponents, headed by Never Dull, by two and a quarter lengths.

Campaign's Magic was a further half length away in third place.

While thrilled with the performance of Ekalaka, Cox would have been disappointed with the efforts of his other two runners, Al Borak and Brassy Jim, who finished second last and last respectively.

Road to Dance, a Group race placegetter from the Bede Murray stable, jumped away the favourite but could manage to run only sixth.

This year's $100,000 trainer's bonus went begging. Both Bede Murray and Cox had a remote chance of taking the rich prize but finished the day with insufficient winners.
