At Flemington in Melbourne, unbeaten European Champion juvenile & dual Gr1-winning Darley shuttler Teofilo (Galileo-Speirbhean, by Danehill) added a Group success when 4YO entire Palentino (Teofilo-Palatine Hill, by Palace Music) scored by 3.25 lengths for trainer Darren Weir in the $200,000 Gr2 Blamey Stakes (1600m) foe 3YO+, over 6YO Japanese-bred entire and stable-mate Tosen Stardom (Deep Impact-Admire Kirameki, by End Sweep) & 5YO UK-bred entire Harlem (Champs Elysees-Casual, by Nayef).
