Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock is leaving as little as possible to chance in pursuit of a hometown cup success. ATB has two runners in the $40,000 Community Bank Ballan and District Ballan Cup, 1512m at Geelong on Saturday. Archie Alexander saddles up Crackerjack Prince for the syndicator and Warrnambool-based Tom Dabernig has Hasseltoff engaged. Crackerjack Prince is chasing a second country cup in a row, being a last-start Avoca Cup winner. MORE RACING Bred by ATB's Darren and Liz Dance, Crackerjack Prince is one of their favourites as a son of Crackerjack King. ATB purchased a major share in Crackerjack King a decade ago in pursuit of their Melbourne Cup dream, but injury cut his racing career short after a handful of Australian starts. Crackerjack Prince has the top weight of 60.5kg, but still looks well suited in the 12-strong field. Hasseltoff is second-up as he looks to add to his four wins. Ballan Jockey Club's only race meeting of the season features eight races. Ballarat trainer Patrick Kearney tackles the $80,000 Ararat Gold Cup, 2200m, on Sunday. He has lightly raced Yellowbrick Road running off the back of a third in the Mortlake Cup. As well as the Gold Cup, the Ararat Turf Club has attracted quality field for the $80,000 Ararat Bowl, 1300m.
