Derryn Wins Listed Darby Munro Stakes
At Rosehill Gardens in Sydney on a heavy track, Yarraman Park's Gr3-winning & 4-time Gr1-placed stallion Hinchinbrook (Fastnet Rock-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a black-type when 3YO colt Derryn (Hinchinbrook-Munhro, by Lonhro) scored by 1.8 lengths for trainers David & Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig in the $125,000 Listed Darby Munro Stakes (1200m) for 3YOs, over 3YO geldings Crafty Cop (Starcraft-Fashion Police, by Elusive Quality) & Tactical Advantage (Bel Esprit-Above Perfection, by Encosta de Lago). Raced by a syndicate managed by Jonathan Munz's Pinecliff Racing, Derryn was a $110,000 purchase by Dean Hawthorne Bloodstock at the 2015 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale from the draft of Bylong Park Thoroughbreds. Derryn is a direct descendant of influential broodmare Easy Date, ancestress of Gr1-winning sire Snippets, Golden Slipper winner Forensics, and Arrowfield's high profile stallion Not A Single Doubt.
