Immortality Wins Hoysted Handicap
Ill-fated Oaklands Stud stallion Lion Hunter (Danehill-Pure Of Heart, by Godswalk) added a black-type success when favoured 4YO gelding Immortality (Lion Hunter-She's God's Gift, by Keltrice) scored a 1.5-lengths victory in the $125,000 Listed Bob Hoysted Handicap (1000m) at Flemington. Immortality (ridden by James Winks for trainer Dan O'Brien) defeated Gr1-winning 7YO gelding Let Go Thommo (Laranto-Memory True, by Is It True) & 6YO mare Lucky Diva (Perugino-Lucky Witch, by Voodoo Rhythm). Immortality (passed-in for $85,000 as a yearling at the 2005 Magic Millions Premier Sale on the Gold Coast) now has 5 wins & 5 placings from 13 starts for $182,530 earnings.
