At Morphettville in Adelaide yesterday, deceased dual-Derby winning stallion & former Coolmore shuttler Montjeu (Sadler's Wells-Floripedes, by Top Ville) added a Group success when 6YO Irish-bred gelding Annus Mirabilis (Montjeu-Love Me True, by Kingmambo) scored by 1.3 lengths for trainer Stuart Webb in the $400,000 Gr2 Adelaide Cup (3200m) for 3YO+, over fellow 6YO Irish-bred gelding Double Bluff (Azamour-Damask Rose, by Dr Devious) & 5YO New Zealand-bred gelding Master of Arts (Mastercraftsman-Petit Verdot, by Carnegie). Annus Mirabilis advanced his record to 5 wins (including the Listed Bagot Handicap) and 3 placings from 19 starts for $443,032 earnings.
