Monday, 9th April 2018

At Ascot in Western Australia, Emirates Park Stud's & Aquis Farm's Gr1 Australian Guineas winning stallion Al Maher (Danehill-Show Dancing, by Don't Say Halo) added a black-type success when 3YO Australian-bred colt Money Maher (Al Maher-Treasury Notes, by Special Bond) scored by 0.3-length for trainers Daniel & Ben Pearce in the $100,000 Listed Melvista Stakes (2200m) for 3YO males, defeating 3YO geldings Sentimental Friend & The Big Show. A $58,000 purchase at the 2016 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Bucklee Farm, Money Maher improved his record to 5 wins (including the Listed JC Roberts Stakes & Listed Fairetha Stakes) and 3 placings (including the Gr3 WATC Sires Produce Stakes) from 14 starts for $273,600 earnings.
