Nine-year-old Central Park completed a two-track family double when he impressively won today's $100,000 XXXX Gold Broome Cup (2200m) in an upset result for Henley Brook trainer John Gangemi.
The victory came 20 minutes after Rock Magic, trained by John's son Chris, scored a stylishly vicgtory in the $52,500 Perth Racing On Facebook and Twitter Handicao (1400m) at Belmont Park.
It was a case of third time lucky for Central Park, who ran 10th and fifth in the 2012 and 2013 Broome Cups.
He was ridden in dashing style today by jockey Campbell McCaullum, who has announced he is on the verge of retirement as a result of weight problems.
Central Park ($8.90) won the cup by 2 1/2 lengths from $2.70 favourite Gladstone and Star Crest ($42.40) was a further 1 3/4 lengths back in third place.
McCallum settled Central Park in fifth position and moved to third at the 800m. He led on straightening and fought off Gladstone, who came from fifth at the 800m.
Chris Gangemi said Rock Magic was a possible Goldfields carnival contender. There is a chance he could be accompanied by Central Park, who looks capable of running a big race in the $160,000 XXXX Gold Kalgoorlie Cup (2300m) on September 20.
Rock Magic ($7) coasted in third position before jockey Jarrad Noke booted him clear to win by 1 3/4 lengths today.
Dream Lifter ($3.80) and favourite Stagnite ($3.60) filled the places.
"Rock Magic could be a Hannan's Handicap candidate," Chris Gangemi said. "The alternative is to prepare him for Ascot's carnival."
The $140,000 Tabtouch Hannan's Handicap (1400m) wll be run on September 17.
Noske was also a winner today on Generous Choice and his younger sister Jerry rode Heavy Set to win.
Express Service and Ram Jam gave trainer Darren McAuliffe and jockey William Pike a winning double.
A front running win was recorded by Express Service ($4) in the Belmont Park Cup (1650m).
The Neville Parnham-trained Dominating was unplaced after suffering cardiac arrythmia.
Ram Jam ($3.20 favourite) scored in the Westspeed Stayers' Bonus Handicap (2000m) after racing prominently.
"Express Service will be aimed at the Coolgardie Cup and Hannan's Handicap," McAuliffe said. "Ram Jam's missions are the Boulder Cup and Kalgoorlie Cup."
The $100,000 Coolgardie Cup (1760m) will be on August 31 and the $110,000 Boulder Cup (2100m) is on September 14.
