Monday, 6th March 2017

Waratah Thoroughbreds' Paul Fudge was rewarded at Royal Randwick last Saturday when UK-bred 5YO gelding Astronomos (New Approach-Crimson Ribbon, by Lemon Drop Kid) scored a soft 3.8-lengths victory for trainer John Thompson in the $125,000 Listed Randwick City Stakes (2000m) for 3YOs+, over 7YO gelding Cafe Society (Motivator-Mishina, by Highest Honor) and 4YO gelding Montauk (More Than Ready-Diamond Cove, by Octagonal). Winless since putting together three wins in the latter part of 2015, the son of 5-time Gr1-winning Darley sire New Approach (Galileo-Park Express, by Ahonoora) took his record to 7 wins & a runner-up from 15 starts for $255,675 earnings. Astronomos was a £260,000 purchase by Waratah Thoroughbreds at the 2012 Tattersalls October – Book 1 Yearling Sale.
