Dual Gr1-winning former Australian champion 1st-season sire Exceed And Excel (Danehill-Patrona, by Lomond) added a black-type success when favoured 4YO mare Kulgrinda (Exceed And Excel-River Crossing, by Bellotto) scored a 1.25-lengths victory in the $80,000 Listed Manihi Classic (1100m) at Morphettville in Adelaide. Kulgrinda (ridden by D Tourneur for trainer Peter Moody) defeated top-weighted 4YO gelding Stirling Grove (Mossman-Kalamata, by Desert Prince) & 5YO mare Beldara (Blevic-New Idea, by Cogitate).
