Madeenaty Wins Listed Maribyrnong Trial Stakes
At Flemington in Melbourne, Darley's former Champion Australian Sire Exceed and Excel (Danehill-Patrona, by Lomond) added an early season juvenile success when 2YO filly Madeenaty (Exceed and Excel-Set For Fame, by Rest) scored a comfortable 2.3-lengths victory for trainers David and Ben Hayes & Tom Dabernig in the $120,000 Listed Maribyrnong Trial Stakes (1000m) for 2YOs. Defeating the colts Double Jeopardy (Exceed & Excel-Nediym's Glow, by General Nediym) & American Genius (All American-Gibraltar Moon, by Rock of Gibraltar), Madeenaty is owned by Shadwell Stud Australia who purchased her for $775,000 at the 2016 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale from the draft of Segenhoe Stud. Heavily spruiked the week before the race, Madeenaty (out of Gr1-placed multiple Group winner Set For Fame), is already considered the benchmark juvenile from the powerful Hayes stable, and might have one more run during the Spring Carnival before heading to the Magic Millions 2YO Classic. Her record stands at 1 win from 1 start for $73,200 earnings.
