Ill-fated Gr1 Golden Slipper-winning Yarraman Park sire Catbird (Danehill-Fitting, by Marscay) added a juvenile black-type success when unbeaten gelded son Facile Tigre (Catbird-Cotton Bay, by Zabaleta) scored a 1-length victory in the $100,000 Listed Ken Russell Memorial Classic (1200m) for 2YOs at the Gold Coast. Facile Tigre (ridden by Eddie Wilkinson for trainers Bruce & Jason McLachlan) defeated favoured filly Trim (Lonhro-Firm, by Night Shift) & previously unbeaten fellow filly Movie (Red Ransom-Strawberry Storm, by Thunder Gulch). Facile Tigre (a $120,000 yearling at the 2008 Magic Millions Premier Sale on the Gold Coast) now has 2 wins from 2 starts for $73,200 earnings.
