Permit Wins Gr3 Manion Cup

Monday, 23rd March 2015

At Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, 8YO imported gelding Permit (Dansili-Cochin, by Swain) scored by 0.8-length for trainer Chris Waller in the $150,000 Gr3 Manion Cup (2400m) for 3YO+, over 5YO gelding Phrases (Casino Prince-Melody, by Stravinsky) & 8YO gelding Bagman (Easy Rocking-Bada Bing, by Dehere). The UK-bred Permit took his record to 9 wins (including the Gr2 Chairman's Handicap & Listed Christmas Cup) and 13 placings (including the Gr3 Prix de Lutece, Listed Randwick City Handicap & Listed Manion Cup) from 53 starts for $705,594 earnings. Trainer Chris Waller speculated that Permit may now be retired. "He has been a great horse for the stable and today was going to be his last race," Waller said. "We are yet to decide whether he runs on and it will be discussed on Monday when the dust has settled."
