Domesky has won his first race of his preparation in the Listed Ballarat Cup at Ballarat Racecourse on Sunday November 20, 2011.
The four-year-old gelding won the race by almost a length in front of second place-getter Rothera and third place-getter Sean Baile Mor.
Trainer Michael Kent said the race conditions were perfectly suited to Domesky’s racing style in the 2011 Ballarat Cup.
“He didn’t have much luck early in his preparation and might have been out of his depth in the Caulfield Cup,” Kent said.
“He’s a backmarker and needs the heat on up front which he got today.
“His owners have been long suffering. We’ve been to Sydney and everywhere with him and it’s great to get a result.”
Domesky was ridden to victory by jockey Brad Rawiller in the 2011 Ballarat Cup.
“Mick has been a great supporter of mine and given me so many winners,” Rawiller said.
“It’s a tremendous training effort and it’s great to win a country Cup like the Ballarat Cup.”
Domesky has now won three of his 19 race starts and earned close to $350,000 in prize money.
