Lynden Park shuttler Desert King (Danehill-Sabaah, by Nureyev) added a group winner when 5YO gelding Desert War (Desert King-High Heels, by Canny Lad) took the $140,000 weight-for-age Gr2 Hill Stakes (1900m) at Rosehill Gardens in Sydney. Desert War (ridden by Jim Byrne for trainer Gai Waterhouse) defeated 6YO mare Portland Singa (Danasinga-State Of Oregon, by Oregon) & 4YO mare Dizelle (Zabeel-Danelagh, by Danehill). Gooree Stud-homebred Desert War now has 5 wins (also including last year's Gr1 Epsom Handicap over 1600m at Randwick) & 3 placings in 17 starts for $597,210 prize-money.
