Arrowfield Stud stallion Flying Spur (Danehill-Rolls, by Mr Prospector) added a group success when 4YO entire Volitant (Flying Spur-Sibon, by Bletchingly) scored a 0.75-lengths win in yesterday's $100,000 Gr3 Victoria Handicap (1400m) at Caulfield. Volitant (ridden by Darren Gauci for trainer Michael Hibbs) defeated favoured 5YO mare Calveen (Canny Lad-Calvinia, by Varick) & 5YO gelding Dismissal (Strategic-Leg Bye, by Dr Grace).
