At Doomben in Queensland, former 6-time Chilean Champion Sire Hussonet (Mr Prospector-Sacahuista, by Raja Baba), who relocated from Arrowfield Stud to stand at Cornerstone Stud, added a group success when 5YO mare Angel Of Mercy (Hussonet-Pieta, by Clay Hero) scored by 0.1-length for trainer Gerald Ryan in the $125,000 Gr3 Lord Mayor's Cup (1615m) for 3YO+, over 4YO mares Wistful (Tiger Hill-Angalreem, by Mr. Prospector) & Cameo (Shamardal-Portrait of a Lady, by A.P. Indy). Angel Of Mercy, whose dam Pieta is a half-sister to multiple Gr1 winner Divine Madonna, took her record to 6 wins (including the Members' Handicap, Listed Northam Cup & Listed James HB Carr Stakes) & 4 placings (including the Gr3 Vanity Stakes) from 26 starts for $431,575 earnings. Angel Of Mercy was purchased by Ryan for $180,000 at the 2010 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Mill Park.
