2013 EASTER CUP: Won by Terror To Love


Terror To Love was back at Addington last Saturday night to make a statement and it was a big statement. So much so that he 'sent the willies up' Cran Dalgety, who is now having second thoughts about taking on Terror To Love with Christen Me in the Miracle Mile.
Terror To Love only had six rivals and three genuine open class pacers to contend with in the $100,000 Breckon Farms and All Stars Racing Stables Easter Cup, a race in which he was beaten by Hands Christian last year.

Having disappointed in the Inter-Dominion and been unlucky in the Auckland Cup, Terror To Love - or more to the point Rick May - was in no mood to show much mercy. After Fly Like An Eagle had taken up the early running from Jivin Cullen, May made his move with 2100m to go and Terror To Love was cruising from the 1800m with the speed for the first mile just comfortable. But when May fired the retro rockets in the run home, Terror To Love burst away to leave his rivals floundering with the back end of a 4:02.2 3200m in a sparkling 26.4.

Highview Tommy and Fly Like An Eagle were genuine disappointments, and it was left to Fronco Ledger to outfinish Ellmer Hanover in the race for second money in a gap of six lengths. The latter, a maiden at the start of the season and still just a six-win horse, did well after costing himself 10m with a gallop at the start.

This was Terror To Love's 21st win from 47 races and took his stakes tally for Terry McDonald to $1.33m, with some big plums still to pick this season.
