Perhaps CAPTAINTREACHEROUS‘ quietest achieving daughter is August Moon and this weekend the filly claimed the GROUP 1 WA Oaks at Gloucester Park, taking her earnings to over $210,000 and her strike rate to nine wins from seventeen starts – congrats to owners! Staking his claim in another Group 1, Petracca was successful by 5m in his Victorian Derby heat at Melton on Saturday.
Some good sires stakes racing continues in North America, and STAY HUNGRY son Stay Grounded claimed his $70,000 New Jersey Sires Stakes Final at Freehold while $71,000 divisions of the 2YO boys International Stallion Stake series at Red Mile were won by CAPTAINTREACHEROUS sons – Captain Albana (1:50.1), Booming Economy (1:50.3) and Magnifico Hanover (1:51.1).
A quiet week for our former roster, led by BETTING LINE with three winners (Aurora Joy, Keayang Domino & Credulous), a double for WESTERN TERROR (You Little Terror & Send It) and for WELL SAID (Saginaw & Young Rooster) and ROCKNROLL HANOVER (Rocks Roy & Minstrel), and winners for ARTISTIC FELLA (Piratesof Zanzibar) and ARTSPEAK (Talks Up A Storm).
