Such a big weekend of results for CAPTAINTREACHEROUS! Lux Aeterna maintained her unbeaten run with a 1:49.9 victory in the GROUP 1 NSW Breeders Challenge 2YO Fillies Final at Menangle, taking her earnings well past $300,000 and putting her in the sire’s top ten earners (six of them are fillies – keep an eye on the 2024 sales!). In the GROUP 1 3YO Colts & Geldings Final, in the same sizzling time of 1:49.9, it was Captains Knock, bumping his bank up to $284,000 and in the 4YO Mares Final, it was Captains Queen taking honours in 1:51.6. Three year olds Mon Lancome (Kaikoura) and Frankie Ferocious (1:54.8 for back to back wins at Albion Park) were in the money, as was unique CAPTAIN trotter, Perfidious Sue in TR1:58.9 at Maryborough! At Harrah’s Hoosier Park, three-year-old Ervin Hanover claimed the $60,000 The Pegasus in 1:49.0.
