Universal Ruler Wins Perth Stakes
Ill-fated former Durham Lodge stallion Scenic (Sadler's Wells-Idyllic, by Foolish Pleasure) added a juvenile black-type quinella when the colt Universal Ruler (Scenic-Rulings, by Hurricane Sky) scored a 1-length victory in the $60,000 Listed Perth Stakes (1100m) for 2YO colts & geldings at Ascot. Universal Ruler (ridden by Jason Whiting for trainer Darren McAuliffe) defeated stakes-winning gelding Scenic Blast (Scenic-Daughter's Charm, by Delgado) & top-weighted fellow gelding Mighty Mak (Key Business-Arabella, by Belele). Universal Ruler (an $42,000 yearling at the 2006 Magic Millions Premier Sale in Perth) now has 2 wins from 3 starts for $68,550 earnings.
