Oakland Park and partners will have two runners in the $500,000 Group 2 Perth Cup to be run New Year’s Day.
Ihtsahymn goes out as second top weight with 58.5 kilograms. He will be ridden by Stephen Parnham and will jump from barrier 6.
Operational will carry the bottom weight of 54 kilograms. Unfortunately hasn’t drawn well but will be ridden by talented jockey Daniel Staeck who will give him every chance.
It is always exciting to have a runner in this iconic race – we wish our partners success.
In addition, we do hope the Oakland Park bred Starlight Lady gains a start for Karen Kersley and connections. She is currently first emergency.
