At Caulfield in Melbourne, French 2000 Guineas & French Derby-winning shuttler Lope De Vega (Shamardal-Lady Vettori, by Vettori) celebrated a pinnacle Gr1 success when 5YO gelding Vega Magic (Lope de Vega-Admirable, by Magic Albert) saluted for trainers David & Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig in the Gr1 NZB Memsie Stakes (1400m) by an extending 1.8-lengths, defeating the Darren Weir stable pairing of Black Heart Bart and Tosen Stardom. Still unbeaten since leaving Western Australia, Vega Magic, who hails from the family of Golden Slipper winner Century Miss, advanced his record to 12 wins (including the Gr1 Goodwood Stakes, Gr3 Colonel Reeves Stakes & Gr3 AJ Scahill Stakes) and 3 placings from 16 starts for $2,026,550 earnings. The scintillating all the way victory not only confirmed his ability to stretch his raw speed at the top level but also further enhanced his undeniable chance should he gain a position in the inaugural The Everest at Royal Randwick on October 14.
