24/05/02 Cup The Fifth Group One for Baster
0520bastercupcr.jpg (10561 bytes)Popular Melbourne jockey Stephen Baster scored his fifth Group One win when he won last Monday's smoke-free Adelaide Cup (3200m) at Morphettville.

The A Train, a member of the Cliff Brown stable, followed in the footsteps of Mookta, Lord Luskin and Rubitano who have won at racing's highest level for Baster.

"I've won a couple of Newmarket Handicaps (Mookta and Rubitano this year), an Oakleigh Plate (Mookta) and a VicHealth Cup with Lord Luskin," an ever smiling Baster said.

Baster was praised by connections of The A Train for giving that horse a good run from an outside barrier during the two mile Cup.

The Adelaide Cup wasn't the only feature race Baster won in the South Australian capital over their biggest race weekend.

Baster predicts a bright future for the daughter of Encosta de Lago.

"She's obviously loaded with ability," Baster said after the win which he described as "freakish."

With Baster having collected both Group races sponsored by the SA Government under the "smoke-free" banner you could think Baster could soon be known as "smoke-free Stephen."

Tomorrow Baster returns to Melbourne with some good rides at the Moonee Valley meeting. Among his leading chances are Magnus Bay in the second, Donvamore in the fourth and Western Waters in the last.
