Khan Wins Listed Breeders' Plate
At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Darley's former Champion Australian Sire Exceed And Excel (Danehill-Patrona, by Lomond) added a black-type success when 2YO colt Khan (Exceed and Excel-Mandawara, by Daylami) scored by 1.3 lengths for trainers Peter & Paul Snowden in the $150,000 Listed Breeders' Plate (1000m) for 2YO colts & geldings, over fellow colts Condor Heroes (Not a Single Doubt-Gosetgo, by More Than Ready) & Bowerman (Snitzel-Sabanci, by Encosta de Lago). Khan's impressive debut victory took his record to 1 win from 1 start for $89,100 in earnings. Purchased for $260,000 by James Harron Bloodstock at the 2016 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Glenlogan Park, the well bred Khan is out a half-sister to three-time Gr1-winning French-bred galloper Manighar.
