At Royal Randwick, triple Gr1-winning Darley shuttler & US Eclipse Award-winning stallion Bernardini (A.P. Indy-Cara Rafaela, by Quiet American) added a group success when talented 4YO gelding Boban (Bernardini-Kenbelle, by Kenmare) scored brilliantly by 3.8-lengths for trainer Chris Waller in the $125,000 Gr3 Bill Ritchie Handicap (1400m) for 3YOs+, over 8YO gelding Belltone (Brahms-Belle Salieri, by Salieri) & fellow 4YO gelding Choice Bro (Choisir-Ladidi, by Palace Music). The highly progressive Boban took his record to 5 wins (including the Listed Doomben Slipper) & 2 placings (including the Gr3 BTC Classic) from 15 starts for $296,663 earnings.
