Titan Banner storms towards Auckland Cup

Titan Banner continued his brilliant form with a win in the Group Two Franklin Cup at Alexandra Park this past Friday. (Watch Replay)

Beginning swiftly from the 20 metre line, Natalie Rasmussen had Titan Banner into a nice position early.

After making a mid race move to the breeze the son of Art Major showed a great amount of tenacity to find the line first over Christen Me and Hug The Wind.

This was Titan Banner's 12th win and takes his earnings to $190,613.

Note: Titan Banner wasn't the only big winner for Art Major on the night with Alta Maestro winning the opening heat of the Young Guns Series. (Watch Replay)

A $100,000 yearling purchase, Alta Maestro was bred by Tony Dickinson's Alta Breeding Co and is out of the In The Pocket mare Alta Camilla.
