Monday, 20th March 2017

At Bunbury racecourse in Western Australia, deceased Yarradale Stud stallion Discorsi (Galileo-Express a Smile, by Success Express) added a black-type success when 4YO gelding Man Booker (Discorsi-Morine, by Danetime) scored by 1.5 lengths for trainer Daniel Morton in the $120,000 Listed Bunbury Classic (1400m) for 3YO+, over fellow 4YO gelding Great Shot (Magnus-Satin Covers, by Dr Grace) & 7YO gelding Dream Lifter (Danehill Express-Ebony Storm, by Metal Storm). Man Booker, who was a $25,000 purchase by his trainer Daniel Morton at the 2014 Magic Millions Perth Winter Yearling Sale from the draft of Korilya Stud, improved his record to 7 wins (including the Gr2 WA Guineas & Listed Pinjarra Classic) and 1 placing (the Listed WATC Fairetha Stakes) from 13 starts for $680,080 earnings.
