Gangbuster Wins Listed Lex Piper Stakes
At Ascot racecourse in Perth, West Australia, Scenic Lodge's VRC Derby-winning sire Blackfriars (Danehill-Kensington Gardens, by Grosvenor) added black-type success when 3YO gelding Gangbuster (Blackfriars-Oopsy Doopsy, by General Nediym) scored by 0.75 length for trainer Trevor Andrews in the $100,000 Listed Lex Piper Stakes (1600m) for 3YO colts & geldings, over fellow 3YO geldings Western Temple (Dream Ahead-Western Jewel, by Jeune) & Final Salute (Not a Single Doubt-Sophia Babe, by Iglesia). Gangbuster, who was a $90,000 purchase by his trainer Trevor Andrews at the 2015 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale from the draft of Gervase Park Stud, improved his record to 2 wins and 3 placings (including the Listed WATC Challenge Stakes) from 7 starts for $114,700 earnings.
