Dark Eyes Wins Listed Canberra Cup

Monday, 6th March 2017

At Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory, Arrowfield Stud's high profile Gr1-winning stallion Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a black-type success when 4YO bay gelding Dark Eyes (Snitzel-Cinnamon Dove, by Gulch) scored by 0.2 length for trainers Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott in the $200,000 Listed Canberra Cup (2000m) for 3YO+, over fellow 4YO gelding Cool Chap (High Chaparral-Cherishing, by Johannesburg) & 6YO gelding Coolcat Dancer (Tale of the Cat-T.H.Dancer, by Dixieland Band). This was the first stakes victory for Dark Eyes who improved his record to 7 wins and 3 placings from 17 starts for $362,615 earnings. Dark Eyes was purchased for $65,000 by Darby racing at the 2014 Magic Millions National Yearling Sale from the draft of Widden Stud.
