Very Discreet Wins Durbridge Stakes

Monday, 19th October 2009

Dual Gr1-winning Darley stallion & former Australian champion 1st-crop sire Exceed And Excel (Danehill-Patrona, by Lomond) added a black-type success when favoured 4YO mare Very Discreet (Exceed And Excel-She's Discreet, by Euclase) made it 2 successive stakes-wins with a 0.75-length victory in the $70,000 weight-for-age Listed Durbridge Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville in Adelaide. Very Discreet (ridden by Chad Lever for trainer Richard Jolly) defeated 5YO mare Hidden Energy (Dehere-Kapchat, by Centaine) & 9YO gelding Royal Ida (Star Pyramul-Star Of Ida, by Paint The Stars). Very Discreet took her record to 4 wins (also including last start's Listed Wylie Handicap over 1100m at Morphettville on September 12) & 2 placings (including March's Gr2 Yallambee Classic over 1200m at Morphettville & 2008's Listed Dequetteville Stakes over 1100m at Morphettville) from 7 starts for $179,850 earnings.
