Daunting Lad Wins Dr John Power
Kingdale Lodge stallion Latarmiss (Sadler's Wells-Foreign Courier, by Sir Ivor) added a black-type success when 4YO entire Daunting Lad (Latarmiss-New Day Dawning, by Standaan) was 2nd-across-the-line by a nose but then steward's reversed the order on protest in the $60,000 Listed Dr John Power Handicap (1200m) at Eagle Farm. Daunting Lad (ridden by Tony Pattillo for trainer Bill Naoum) defeated 3YO filly Single Rose (Irgun-Waterford Fair, by Raise A Native) & 6YO gelding Nessuno (Mukaddamah-Erin's Choice, by County). Daunting Lad (a $20,000 yearling at the 2003 Magic Millions Summer Sale) was returning from a 3-month spell & recorded his 3rd successive victory; overall he now has 8 wins & 3 placings in 18 starts for $287,050 prize-money.
