At Morphettville in Adelaide yesterday, Coolmore's European Horse Of The Year & 6-time Gr1-winning shuttler Dylan Thomas (Danehill-Lagrion, by Diesis) added a black-type success when 5YO gelding Dylanson (Dylan Thomas-Nena Candida, by Canny Lad) scored by 1.6-lengths for trainer Phillip Stokes in the $80,000 Listed CS Hayes Memorial Cup (1600m) for 3YO+, over 5YO entire Mouro (Grand Slam-Kalpita, by Spinning World) & 4YO gelding Gamblin' Guru (New Approach-Glory Guru, by Fusaichi Pegasus). This was the first stakes victory for Dylanson who took his record to 6 wins and 6 placings (including the Listed SAJC Birthday Cup) from 21 starts for $188,560 earnings. Dylanson was purchased by Stokes for just $25,000 at the 2011 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale from the draft of Edinglassie Stud.
