As the fifth race on Saturday, the Group 2 Brisbane Cup (2400m) took to the Eagle Farm Racecourse forming part of the AAMI Stradbroke Raceday and saw Crossthestart win with a gallant performance.
Sitting off the pace in fourth, the Cape Cross gelding took the win in the final straight with a gallant finish.
The win gave trained Bevan Laming his third Brisbane Cup title, while Chris Munce continued his fantastic racing in the Queensland capital, with the win giving the jockey his fourth win in the race.
Sitting off the pace in fourth, the Cape Cross gelding took the win in the final straight with a gallant finish which saw him take the lead from Scouting Wide by a length and a quarter.
The runner up of the 2010 Brisbane Cup set the pace from early on leading the pack and finished a nose ahead of the third-placed Ekstreme.
Crossthestart and Laming are now aiming for the Spring Racing and the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) most likely the target after such an impressive staying event by the late bloomer.
