BRIGHTON-trained stayer Geegees Blackflash ($7) has scored a memorable two-length victory in today's Launceston Cup.

The John Luttrell trained galloper was perfectly ridden by Victorian jockey Peter Mertens in the $225,000 Group Three AAMI Cup (2400m) at Mowbray.

He held off a late challenge in wet conditions from Lucky Angel ($6.50), with Dream Pedlar ($41) finishing third.

Race favourite Hurdy Gurdy Man ($3.60) bled during the race and was eased out of the Cup at the 800 metres.

Geegees Blackflash, owned by Tasmanian couple Paul and Elizabeth Geard, has a swag of big wins under his belt including the Tasmanian Derby (2010), Tasmanian Newmarket (2011), Hobart Cup (2012) and a host of weight-for-age races

The Cleaner led the Cup field but was a beaten conveyance at the 600 metres.

The event, held under rainy skies, drew a crowd of more than 10,000 people.
