At Caulfield in Melbourne on Saturday, former Craiglea Stud stallion Top Echelon (Umatilla-Advisory, by Kingston Rule) added a Group success when 8YO chestnut gelding Our Boy Malachi (Top Echelon-Rusticate, by Rustic Amber) scored by 1.5 lengths for trainers John, Wayne & Michael Hawkes in the $200,000 Gr2 Caulfield Sprint (1000m) for 3YO+, over 4YO gelding Faatinah (Nicconi-Alqwah, by Danehill) & 7YO gelding Lankan Rupee (Redoute's Choice-Estelle Collection, by Stravinsky). Our Boy Malachi, also known as the 'Rockhampton Rocket', boosted his remarkable record to 19 wins (including the Gr2 Expressway Stakes, Gr3 Hall Mark Stakes, Listed Razor Sharp Handicap & Listed Starlight Stakes) and 3 placings (including the Gr1 BTC Cup & Gr2 ATC Premiere Stakes) from 26 starts for $946,400 earnings.
