Big Day For Vinery Stud At Scone
Meanwhile, Vinery Stud celebrated another big day at Saturday's major Scone race meeting. Following the victory of Excites gelding Black Jag in the opening event at White Park, Vinery had another two stallions claim honours in feature events, courtesy of Mighty Lucky (Casino Prince) in the Luskin Star Stakes & Testarhythm (Testa Rossa) in the Ortensia Stakes – see the full race reports above. Mighty Lucky is the sixth stakes winner by Casino Prince (standing in 2014 for $16,500) who's also been represented by another six stakes-placed horses this season including Gr1 Australian Derby third Hooked. Testarythm by Testa Rossa (standing in 2014 for $27,500) helped his sire repeat last year's feature success at Scone (Fontelina & Speediness). The timing of Saturday's successes proved perfect for Vinery which showcased its property and stallions at open days on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
