Aust-Bred Dylan's Promise Wins South Africa Black-Type
Former European Horse-Of-The-Year & 6-time Gr1-winning Coolmore shuttler Dylan Thomas (Danehill-Lagrion, by Diesis) added a South African black-type success (& 3rd individual stakes-winner world-wide) when Australian-bred daughter Dylan's Promise (Dylan Thomas-Madonna, by Rigoletto) scored a half-length victory in the R110,000 (A$14,000) Listed Rising Sun B&B Devon Air Stakes (1450m) for 2YOs fillies at Clairwood. Dylan's Promise (ridden by Anbton Marcus for trainer Charles Laird) defeated Lizzy Grey (Windrush-Arctic Game, by Northern Guest) & Preamble (Miesque's Approval-Speedy Eli, by Elliodor). Dylan's Promise (a $35,000 yearling consigned by Erinvale Thoroughbreds at the 2011 Inglis Premier Sale in Melbourne) took her record to 2 wins & a placing from 3 starts.
