Monday, 27th February 2017

At Caulfield racecourse in Melbourne, dual Gr1-winning Irish stallion Bushranger (Danetime-Danz Danz, by Efisio) added a Group success when 3YO gelding Benz (Bushranger-Mycedes, by Encosta de Lago) scored by 0.75 length for trainer Gordon Richards in the $150,000 Gr3 Zeditave Stakes (1200m) for 3YO colts & geldings, over 3YO colts Hard Promise (Hard Spun-Perfect Promise, by Caesour) & Derryn (Hinchinbrook-Munhro, by Lonhro). In opening up his stakes account, Benz improved his record to 6 wins from 10 starts for $280,190 earnings. Benz was purchased for $11,000 at the 2014 Inglis Great Southern Weanling Sale from the draft of Eliza Park International, before being subsequently picked up by Richards for $37,000 at the 2015 Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale.
