Hughie Green's win in the Group Three Summer Cup was the highlight on a great night at Alexandra Park for the progeny of Alabar stallions.
Showing good gate speed to lead, Hughie Green controlled the race and was never headed as he ran away to win the Auckland Cup lead up by one and three quarter lengths.
The four year old son of Art Major has now won his only two starts this season and overall has nine wins from fifteen starts.
Alabar stallions sired another four winners on the program with the smart three year olds Golden Goddess (Art Major), Art Form (Art Major) and Royal Willie (Majestic Son) all victorious.
All three will no doubt be playing a big part of the three year old classics this season.
The other winner was the four year old mare Norvic Ruby (Real Desire) who broke through for her first win at start five.
