Young Lionel Wins Listed Bunbury Stakes

Monday, 14th March 2016

At Bunbury in Western Australia, Scenic Lodge's Victoria Derby-winning sire Blackfriars (Danehill-Kensington Gardens, by Grosvenor) added a black-type success when 7YO gelding Young Lionel (Blackfriars-Prime Again, by Marooned) scored by 0.5-length for trainer Lou Luciani in the $120,000 Listed Bunbury Stakes (1400m) for 3YO+, over 6YO gelding Dream Lifter (Danehill Express-Ebony Storm, by Metal Storm) & 4YO gelding First Among Equals (Exceed and Excel-Pride of the Class, by Volksraad). This was an excellent first-up win by Young Lionel who took his record to 9 wins (including the Listed Northam Cup) and 16 placings from 48 starts for $498,575 earnings. Young Lionel, who is out of the Gr2 WATC Champion Fillies Stakes winner Prime Again, is a half brother to multiple stakes winner Lady Knockout and was purchased for $35,000 by his trainer Lou Luciani at the 2010 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale from the draft of Durham Lodge.
