Overreach Wins Gr2 Moet & Chandon Stakes
At Rosehill in Sydney, Darley's former Australian champion 1st-season sire Exceed And Excel (Danehill-Patrona, by Lomond) added a group success when boom filly Overreach (Exceed and Excel-Bahia, by Snippets) treated her rivals with disdain in scoring a 4-lengths victory for trainer Gai Waterhouse in the $295,700 Gr2 Moet & Chandon Stakes (1200m) for 2YO fillies, over fellow fillies Villa Verde (Not a Single Doubt-Young and Free, by Kenmare) & Spurrendous (Shamardal-Spurcent, by Flying Spur). Stamping herself as the horse to beat in the upcoming Gr1 Golden Slipper Stakes, Corumbene Stud-homebred Overreach took her record to 2 wins (including the Listed Widden Stakes at Rosehill) & a placing (including runner-up in the Listed Debutante Stakes at Caulfield on debut) from 3 starts for $263,300 earnings.
