At Hobart in Tasmania, former Gr1 French 2,000 Guineas-winning shuttler Astronomer Royal (Danzig-Sheepscot, by Easy Goer) added a black-type success when 3YO Australian-bred gelding Wolfendale (Astronomer Royal-Skibo, by Carnegie) rallied strongly in the straight to register his maiden stakes victory in the $100,000 Listed Hobart Guineas (2100m) for 3YOs, defeating Double You Tee & Pennstock. Wolfendale improved his record to 3 wins and 1 placing from 5 starts for $93,825 in earnings. Trained by Darren Weir, Wolfendale hails from the family of New Zealand Derby winner Zonda, Gr1 NZ Thoroughbred Breeders' Stakes winner Surprize Surprize, and smart Gr2 winning Sydney mare Dixie Blossoms.
