Tanby Wins Listed The Bart Cummings
Former shuttler & Gr1 English Derby winner Galileo (Sadler's Wells-Urban Sea, by Miswaki) added a Listed success when 6YO gelding Tanby (Galileo out of Dane Belltar, by Danewin) scored by 1-length for trainer Robert Hickmott in the $120,000 Listed The Bart Cummings (2500m) for 4YOs+ at Flemington, over 6YO gelding Maluckyday (Zabeel out of Natalie Wood, by Yachtie) & 5YO mare Dame Claire (Danehill Dancer out of Lovely Actress, by Kaldoun). Tanby (a $200,000 yearling consigned by Mill Park at the 2008 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) took his record to 8 wins (also including the Listed Bendigo Cup) & 6 placings (including the Gr2 Herbert Power Stakes & Gr3 Geelong Cup) from 21 starts for $432,355 earnings. Tanby was one of 3 winners (all metrop) to win out of his dam Dane Beltar on Saturday, the other two being fellow Flemington stakes-winner Fawkner & Morphettville winner Viking Star.
