Birdrun awarded first place in $250,000 Greenwood Cup


Thursday, October 13, 2011 |
Birdrun, winner of the Brooklyn H. (G2) in June, earned his second stakes win of 2011 when the 5-year-old son of Birdstone was awarded first place in the $250,000 Greenwood Cup on Oct. 12.

The Greenwood Cup, run at Parx Racing on July 16, was originally won by A. U. Miner, but was subsequently disqualified from the first-place purse earned in that victory as a result of a positive drug finding. Birdrun, who finished second, was declared the winner by the Pennsylvania track's stewards.

Besides Birdrun, Birdstone is the sire of S. S. Stone, winner of this year's Grade 3 Skip Away S. and the promising stakes-placed 2-year-old Little Bird.
