At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Coolmore's deceased dual Derby-winning shuttler & 6-time Gr1 victor High Chaparral (Sadler's Wells-Kasora, by Dashaan) added a Group success when 4YO gelding Sadler's Lake (High Chaparral-Mingshan, by Encosta de Lago) scored by 0.5-length for trainer Chris Waller in the $125,000 Gr3 Bill Ritchie Handicap (1400m) for 3YO+, over 5YO gelding Rudy (Red Dazzler-Go on Now Go, by Success Express) & 6YO gelding and stable-mate Heart Testa (Testa Rossa-Graciela, by Flying Spur). Sadler's Lake, who hails from the family of brilliant dual Gr1-winning mare Shame, took his record to 5 wins (including the Gr3 Rough Habit Plate) and 1 placing from 10 starts for $331,205 earnings. Waller confirmed that Sadler's Lake will have his next start in the Gr1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) at Randwick on 3 October.
