Morgan Dollar Wins Dermody Stakes

Monday, 28th July 2008

NSW's Bathurst-based Ashbrook Stud & former Eliza Park Stud sire Planchet (Canny Lad-Penny, by Bletchingly) recorded his 1st stakes-winner when favoured 3YO gelding Morgan Dollar (Planchet-Sapphire Flash, by O'Reilly) blitzed his rivals by 4.5-lengths in the $60,000 Listed Dermody Stakes (1000m) for 2YOs & 3YOs at Cheltenham in Adelaide. Morgan Dollar (ridden by Steven Arnold for trainer Stuart Gower) defeated the 3YO fillies Distinctive Lass (Orientate-Special Sweep, by End Sweep) & Gold Chant (El Moxie-Gold Anthem, by Made Of Gold). Morgan Dollar (originally a $21,000 weanling at the 2005 Magic Millions Winter Sale & then resold for $46,000 as a yearling at the 2006 Adelaide Magic Millions Sale) now has 4 wins & a placing from 13 starts for $139,480 earnings. His Gr2-winning & Gr1-placed sire Planchet is standing at Ashbrook in 2008 for $4,400. (Click on the link for full race details from Group Race Results at AAP Racing.)
