Grand campaigner Pinnacles has become racing’s latest millionaire with victory in Sunday’s Sale Cup.

The Rick Hore-Lacy-trained eight-year-old made light of his 59kg topweight in the $150,000 race over 1600 metres.

Steven Arnold brought Pinnacles ($5.50) along the rail to beat Lord Pyrus by a length with the $94,500 first prize taking the gelding’s earnings to $1 million plus change.

After running second to stablemate Toorak Toff in the Group One Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m), Pinnacles was a solid fifth in the Group One Epsom Handicap (1600m).

“It’s definitely one in the arm for the oldies, Hore-Lacy said.

“It was a great win and a champion ride from a champion rider.”

Hore-Lacy, a well known punter, said he had been distracted and had not had a bet on Pinnacles who he also part-owns.

“I went down to get an ice cream and started licking it and thought `this is good’ and I forgot about having a bet,” he said.

Earlier in the day, Hawkesbury trainer Joan Pracey celebrated a big pay day with three-year-old Upstacker, winner of the $100,000 Inglis Trophy (1400m) at the Sale meeting.

An $18,000 yearling at the Inglis Classic Sale, Upstacker has now earned more than $133,000 prize money and his owner received a $50,000 sale voucher for the win.

Upstacker won a $50,000 Inglis race on his home track in April and Pracey said she would keep travelling him to try to win more.

“We are trying to follow the bonuses,” she said.

“I’m thrilled. He arrived on Tuesday and didn’t travel so well.

“But the club have looked after us and he worked on the track a couple of times.”
