Kentuckiana Lodge star Krug will start from the coveted ace draw of barrier 1 in the A$250,000 The Rising Sun at Albion Park on Saturday night.

The Cran and Chrissie Dalgety trained colt was always going to draw barrier 1 or 2 in the inaugural running of the rich feature.

When fellow fellow three-year-old Kashed Up took barrier 2 to kick off Monday night's draw the team from Kentuckiana Lodge knew Krug had sealed the perfect starting spot.

Cran caught up with Brittany Graham and Chris Barsby shortly after the The Rising Sun's field was finalised, check out the video below:
