Multiple Group winner Torcedor has added to his black-type tally with a solid runner-up performance to Stradivarius in the Gr.1 Goodwood Cup (3200m) on Tuesday.

The son of Fastnet Rock set the pace in the two mile feature, but was unable to hold-off race favourite Stradivarious, who won by half a length over the Te Akau runner.

Te Akau principal David Ellis purchased Torcedor at the 2013 Deauville Yearling Sales for 70,000 euros (NZ$115,000) and his New Zealand owners include Sir Patrick Hogan, Sir Peter Vela and Laurie Laxon.

The Jessica Harrington-trained runner has won five races, including two at Group Three level, while yesterday’s placing was his third at Group One level.
