Mr Vadim Wins Listed Hannan's Handicap
At Kalgoorlie in Western Australia, Arrowfield Stud-based 5-time Gr1-winning stallion Starcraft (Soviet Star-Flying Floozie, by Pompeii Court) added a black-type success when 6YO gelding Mr Vadim (Starcraft-Femme D'affaire, by Woodman) scored a half-length victory for trainer Peter Fernie in the $130,000 Listed Hannan's Handicap (1400m) for 3YOs+, over 7YO geldings Prost (Show A Heart-Christchurch, by Caerleon) & Trustee Brown (Oratorio-Highway Bliss, by Marauding). A $100,000 yearling consigned by Geisel Park Stud at the 2009 Magic Millions Perth Premier Sale, Mr Vadim's inaugural stakes victory took his record to 7 wins & 8 placings from 33 starts for $175,883 earnings. The win provided Starcraft with his 14th individual black-type winner.
