Burning Front Wins Listed CS Hayes Memorial Cup

Tuesday, 14th March 2017

At Morphettville in Adelaide yesterday, Gr3-winning & triple Gr1-placed stallion Primus (Flying Spur-Copa de Oro, by Hector Protector) added a black-type success when 6YO chestnut gelding Burning Front (Primus-She's a Knockout, by Kingston Rule) scored by 0.4 length for trainer Darren Weir in the $100,000 Listed CS Hayes Memorial Cup (1600m) for 3YO+, over 7YO New Zealand-bred gelding Dances on Stars (Snitzel-Starnet, by Last Tycoon) & fellow 6YO gelding Great Esteem (Redoute's Choice-Park Esteem, by Singspiel). The ultra-consistent Burning Front improved his record to 16 wins (including the Gr3 TS Carlyon Cup - twice) and 18 placings (including the Gr3 VRC TAB Rewards Stakes & Gr3 MRC Sandown Stakes) from 45 starts for $940,460 earnings. Burning Front was passed in for $38,000 at the 2012 Inglis Melbourne Autumn Yearling Sale from the draft of Caithness Breeding.
