At Doomben in Queensland, Waikato Stud's Gr1 Australian Guineas-winning stallion Pins (Snippets-No Finer, by Kaoru Star) added a further group success when 5YO mare Pretty Pins (Pins-Luna Tudor, by Military Plume) scored by 2-lengths for trainer John Thompson in the $125,000 Gr3 Chairman's Handicap (2000m) for 3YO+, over 5YO UK-bred gelding Danchai (Authorized-Scarlet Empire, by Red Ransom) & 7YO gelding Brave Ali (O'Reilly-Knockmeout, by Kingdom Bay). This was the first stakes victory for Pretty Pins who took her record to 6 wins and 4 placings from 27 starts for $285,400 earnings.
