Over the next ten days leading up to the all-important Albury Gold Cup 2018, The Border Mail will be giving you tastes of the past with yearly flashback galleries.
Did our Border Mail photographers snap a picture of you that year? Take a look and find out!
Class prevailed at Albury racecourse in 2010 when globe-trotting stayer Growl stormed to victory in the $170,000 Albury Gold Cup (2000m).
The David Hayes-trained gelding, who started a $4.20 favourite, went out after the well-backed Deltona ($4.60) in the straight and claimed the Kevin Moses-trained runner in the final few strides to win by a half-head.
Wodonga galloper He’s An Angel ($26) proved he could be a star of the future by running a game race for third, two lengths away.
Growl’s win adds the Hayes name to the list of Gold Cup winners and gives Melbourne jockey Brad Rawiller a onefrom- one strike-rate in the race.
