Luke Price always has Berry Cup day marked in the calendar but it is not the feature he wants to win “it’s Pop’s race.”
The charity day brings many from Berry to Kembla Grange and it raises money for Noahs Ark, but the meeting also holds the Kevin Robinson Memorial Cup.
“We always want to have a runner. Mum (Patricia) really wants to win it, so to have Feisty Fox there and a winning chance is great,” Price said. “There have been a couple of extra calls since the fields came out.
“The family has had a good record in it. Terry and Anna (Robinson) have both won it and dad won it with One Way Ticket.
“When I was training by myself I won a Jim McGee Memorial with Man Of Choice but I have never had a runner in this race.
“Being named after Pop means a lot and he is probably the reason I’m here and it would be a race I could tick over, it is pretty important.”
Feisty Fox, which is trained by Luke in partnership with father Robert, returned with a solid second at Goulburn last month on heavy track and is well suited in the fillies and mares class 1.
“She is going really well on the track and firmer ground is going to suit,” Price said. “She is a mare that we have taken our time with and it would be great if she would win.
”I think she is up to it and it is good to have Peter Wells riding.”
