Calliope Wins Gr2 Magic Night Stakes

Monday, 14th March 2016

At Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, Darley's former Champion Australian Sire Exceed And Excel (Danehill-Patrona, by Lomond) added a Group success when Godolphin's 2YO filly Calliope (Exceed and Excel-Melpomene, by Elusive Quality) scored by 0.2-length for trainer John O'Shea in the $175,000 Gr2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) for 2YO fillies, over fellow fillies Omei Sword (High Chaparral-Irish Lights, by Fastnet Rock) & Twist Tops (Beneteau-Imtops, by High Rolling). A homebred for Darley Stud, Calliope is out of the stakes placed Elusive Quality mare Melpomene, a daughter of Gr1 VRC Oaks winner Bulla Borghese. She took her record to 2 wins (including the Listed Gimcrack Stakes) from 3 starts for $202,000 earnings.
