The Raoul Rivet Cup over 1500m at Champ de Mars Racecourse in Mauritius on Saturday was won by the effervescent Backworth-bred 8-year-old, Mac Mufti (SAF) (Al Mufti (USA) - Miss Unimac (AUS)).

Italian Lakes (BRZ) (Mark of Esteem (IRE)) set the pace up front, while Mac Mufti followed on the rails at the rear of the pack under jockey Sunil Bhundoo. Entering the home straight, Ntandane (SAF) (Parade Leader (USA)) looked the winner under jockey Brandon Morgenwood but Mac Mufti surged strongly to narrowly edge out the Alain Perdrau Stable’s representative. The Money Is Yours (SAF) (In The Money (IRE)) took third spot ahead of Jack Sparrow (SAF) (Fort Wood (USA)).

Congratulations to trainer Vincent Allet.
