Classic Uniform Wins Listed Parramatta Cup
At Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, Emirates Park Stud stallion Al Maher (Danehill-Show Dancing, by Don't Say Halo) added a black-type success when 4YO gelding Classic Uniform (Al Maher-Pyrotechnics, by Canny Lad) scored by 0.2 length for trainer Gary Moore in the $125,000 Listed Parramatta Cup (1900m) for 3YO+, over 7YO gelding Red Excitement (Excites-Red Obsession, by Red Ransom) & 7YO mare Song And Laughter (Song of Tara-What a Giggle, by Air de France). This was the first stakes victory for Classic Uniform who improved his record to 5 wins and 13 placings from 26 starts for $269,700 earnings. A $170,000 purchase at the 2014 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale from the draft of Emirates Park, Classic Uniform's staying talent belies his speed-laden pedigree as he descends from the family as Gr1 Oakleigh Plate & Gr1 Lightning Stakes winner Sports. Gr2 Silver Shadow Stakes winner Seika, Gr3 winner Medals, and multiple stakes-winning sprinter Top Charger.
