It wasn’t to be for Victorian trainer-driver Bec Bartley and her popular pacer San Carlo on New Zealand Cup Day, but it is onward and upward to the Inter Dominion.

“Unfortunately things didn’t go the way we expected,” Bartley said.

“He appeared to have an off day as well as not handling the track 100 per cent.”

Bartley, who co-trains San Carlo with Steve O’Donoghue, said the nine-year-old would “have a few light days before heading to Auckland”.

Cruz Bromac produced a powerful finishing burst for driver Blair Orange to win the NZ Cup, delivering his Australian connections the silverware, while earlier in the day Tough Monarch captured the Group 1 New Zealand Trotters Free for All for New South Wales trainer Rickie Alchin and driver Anthony Butt.

Victorian McLovin produced an enormous effort to finish second for the Kate and Andy Gath team.

Both trotters will contest the Group 1 Dominion Trot at Addington.
