The River Wins Listed Perth Stakes
At Ascot in Western Australia, Eliza Park's Gr1 Galaxy-winning stallion Magnus (Flying Spur-Scandinavia, by Snippets) added a black-type success when 2YO gelding The River (Magnus-Jestceny, by Real Jester) scored by 0.25-length for trainer Trevor Andrews in the $150,000 Listed Perth Stakes (1100m) for 2YO c&g, over fellow 2YO geldings Atacama Sky (Scandal Keeper-Morine, by Danetime) & Speeding Comet (Manhattan Rain-Brazen Hussey, by Hussonet). The River, who was sold for $110,000 to Trevor Andrews at the 2015 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale from the draft of Western Breeders Alliance, took his record to 3 wins (including the Magic Millions WA 2YO Classic) and 1 placing from 4 starts for $320,700 earnings.
