Multiple Gr1-winning former NZ Highview Stud shuttler Johar (Gone West-Windsharp, by Lear Fan) added a group success when gelded son Folding Gear (Johar-Royal Show, by Deputy Governor) scored a half-neck victory in the 180,000 Gr2 Autumn Classic (1800m) for 3YOs at Caulfield. Folding Gear (ridden by Ben Melham for trainers Lee & Shannon Hope) defeated fellow geldings Elusive King (Elusive Quality-Homecoming Queen, by Danehill) & favourite Almindoro (Redoute's Choice-Alalunga, by Machiavellian). Folding Gear (a NZ$30,000 yearling at the 2009 NZ Bloodstock Select Sale at Karaka) took his record to 2 wins & a placing from 4 starts for $132,088 earnings.
