At Flemington in Melbourne, Emirates Park Stud stallion Al Maher added a black-type success when 4YO gelding Amovatio (Al Maher-Grand Ovation, by Scenic) scored by 0.1-length for trainer Chris Waller in the $150,000 Listed Winter Championship Series Final (1600m) for 3YO+, over 5YO gelding Mr Utopia (Elusive Quality-Base Paradise, by Choisir) & 5YO mare Coronation Shallah (Strategic-Coronation Crystal, by Bianconi). This was the first stakes victory for Amovatio who took his record to 7 wins and 12 places from 28 starts for $603,415 earnings. Amovatio was an $85,000 purchase by Spicer Thoroughbreds at the 2012 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Edinburgh Park.
