Brett Cavanough believes Still Undaunted’s future lies as a Country Cups horse after the four-year-old landed the Scone trainer his first Manuka Chaff Wallabadah Cup (1500m) on Monday.

The bay or brown gelding snuck home on the inside by a head from Dale Wagstaff’s Sworn In to win the 166th edition of the historic race.

After a big 2017, with talented sprinter The Monstar named NSW Country Horse of the Year, it gave Cavanough a double for the day and the perfect start to 2018.

“It probably can’t get any better – straight off the bat two wins,” Cavanough said with Avocado winning the opening of the five races.

It was the three-time NSW Leading Country Trainer’s first time at Wallabadah after moving up to Scone last year.

“We like to participate at the community meetings. It’s where I started and it’s the grassroots,” he said. 

“Every time I drove past it I couldn’t wait to get here.”
