Prolific chaser Wynburn Ruby cracked her second staying feature triumph with a dazzling track record performance in the $5,865 Paul Bullock Cup over the 600-metre journey in Launceston on Monday night.

The race looked all but over just after box rise, as the Ben Englund-prepared daughter of Fernando Bale and Wynburn Cutie, easily got to the lead and was able to have it all her own way out front in the FFA feature.

Buckle Up Kenzie got to second in the closing stages finishing 13-1/2 lengths away from Wynburn Ruby, as Dewana Boogie ran on strongly to finish third, the winner clocking a mind-blowing 34.18s for the effort.

Bell Haven previously held the track record for 10 years when running 34.57s for Ted Medhurst in 2012.

Bringing up her 16th career win, for the Wynburn Racing Syndicate, the 2023 Paul Bullock Cup goes alongside the Group 2 Launceston Cup, Tasmanian Oaks, Rising Stars and the Shane Yates Memorial Cup.

“A staggering effort, you don’t see records broken the way Wynburn Ruby performed,” Ben Englund stated.

“There’s been a lack of staying races in preparation for this race, so we had to work out a program and have Wynburn Ruby ready for the assignment, her trials leading into the race indicated she was really spot on.”

Her record around the Launceston track stands at 10 starts for seven wins.

“The quality of runners in this race was outstanding and Wynburn Ruby couldn’t afford to do much wrong. I was really pleased in the way she began and held the margin strongly throughout the run,” Englund added.

Connections are yet to make a decision where to head next with Wynburn Ruby.

“Really unsure what’s next for Wynburn Ruby, I have the Group 1 Sandown Cup written up on the whiteboard at home. We would have to go over first and give her a try before contesting such a series,” the trainer said.

Heats of the Group 1 Sandown Cup at Sandown Park in Victoria are programmed for Thursday 18 May.
