VEGA ONE 13th G1 winner for sire LOPE DE VEGA

Five-year-old VEGA ONE made his name program at Eagle Farm today when he scored the AUSD700,000 Kingsford-Smith Cup, a 1300m G1 sprint, following a fantastic late run in the final straight. Ridden by Jamie Kah, the Tony Gollan-trained son of LOPE DE VEGA was ahead by half a length against Australia's sprinter elite and thus became the thirteenth individual G1 winner for his sire.
