Belmonte Wins Carbine Club Stakes
Former Darley shuttler Singspiel (In The Wings-Glorious Song, by Halo) also added a black-type success when ultra-consistent gelded son Belmonte (Singspiel-Misunderstanding, by Palace Music) made it 3 wins & 2 runner-ups from his last 5 starts with a half-length victory in the $100,000 Listed Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) for 3YOs at Randwick. Belmonte (ridden by Zac Purton for trainer Bernie Howlett) defeated the colt Prince Arthur (Danehill-Scribbling, by Palace Music) & filly Zenarta (Orpen-Wuji, by Northern State). Belmonte (a $25,000 yearling at the 2004 Inglis Premier Sale in Melbourne) now has 4 wins & 5 placings in 10 starts for $116,000 prize-money.
