Friday, 25th September 2015

At Kalgoorlie in Western Australia yesterday, Coolmore's former triple Gr1-winning stallion Haradasun (Fusaichi Pegasus-Circles Of Gold, by Marscay) added a black-type success when 6YO gelding Royal Rada (Haradasun-Royal Emerger, by Flying Spur) scored by 0.25-lengths for trainer Neville Parnham in the $140,000 Listed Hannans Handicap (1400m) for 3YO+, over 7YO gelding Akhedasset (Akhenaton-Business Asset, by Key Business) & 4YO gelded race favourite Red Ora (Due Sasso-Friartriar, by Blackfriars). This was the first stakes victory for Royal Rada who took his record to 10 wins and 9 placings from 39 starts for $246,585 earnings. Royal Rada was purchased for $75,000 by McDonald Racing at the 2011 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Bell River Thoroughbreds.
