At Ascot in Perth, Western Australia, former Yarradale Stud Gr2-winning stallion Musket (Redoute's Choice-Tugela, by Riverman), a three-quarter brother to champion mare and three-time Melbourne Cup winner Makybe Diva, added a black-type success when 6YO Australian-bred gelding Falcon Crest (Musket-La Lollobrigida, by Dauberval) posted his first stakes victory courtesy of a strong-finishing performance in the $100,000 Listed Detonator Stakes (1800m) for 3YO+, defeating Woodsville & Dark Alert. Falcon Crest improved his record to 7 wins and 10 placings (including the Listed WATC Detonator Stakes & Listed Northam Cup) from 30 starts for $377,830 in earnings.
