Man Booker Wins Listed Pinjarra Classic
At Pinjarra Park in Western Australia, deceased Yarradale Stud stallion Discorsi (Galileo-Express a Smile, by Success Express) added a black-type success when 4YO gelding Man Booker (Discorsi-Morine, by Danetime) posted a dominant 2.5 length win for trainer Daniel Morton in the $120,000 Listed Pinjarra Classic (1300m) for 3YO+, over 4YO gelding Great Shot (Magnus-Satin Covers, by Dr Grace) & 5YO gelding Coming Back (High Chaparral-Recurring, by Pentire). Man Booker, who was a $25,000 purchase by his trainer Daniel Morton at the 2014 Magic Millions Perth Winter Yearling Sale from the draft of Korilya Stud, improved his record to 6 wins (including the Gr2 WA Guineas) and 1 placing (the Listed WATC Fairetha Stakes) from 12 starts for $605,580 earnings.
