Good Standing Wins Gr3 Caulfield Classic
At Caulfield in Melbourne on Saturday, US Gr1-winning Emirates Park shuttler Artie Schiller (El Prado-Hidden Light, by Majestic Light) added a Group success when 3YO colt Good Standing (Artie Schiller-Elahi, by Giant's Causeway) scored by 0.75 length for trainer James Cummings in the $500,000 Gr3 Caulfield Classic (2000m) for 3YOs, over 3YO gelding Rocketeer (Smart Missile-Some Girls Do, by More Than Ready) & fellow 3YO colt Inference (So You Think-Pontiana, by Redoute's Choice). A homebred for Eduardo Cojuangco's Gooree Stud, Good Standing is out of the Giant's Causeway mare Elahi, a daughter of Gr1 Australasian Oaks winner Tempest Morn. This latest victory improved his record to 2 wins (including the Gr2 Skyline Stakes) and 2 placings (including the Gr2 ATC Stan Fox Stakes) from 9 starts for $567,450 earnings.
