The Eighth Maker Wins City of Marion Stakes

Monday, 12th December 2011

South Australia's Rivers End Stud-based multiple Gr1-winning stallion Clangalang (Clang-Little Recruit, by Staff Sergeant) added a black-type success (& 4th individual stakes-winner) when 6YO gelding The Eighth Maker (Clangalang-Floral Emblem, by Bluebird) scored by a neck in the $80,000 Listed City Of Marion Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville in Adelaide. The Eighth Maker (ridden by Paul Gatt for trainer Lloyd Kennewell) defeated fellow 6YO gelding Outlandish Lad (Fantastic Light-Quantum Leap, by Regal Classic) favoured top-weighted 7YO gelding Rocking Force (Oamaru Force-Finlandia, by Squill). The Eighth Maker (an $82,000 yearling consigned by Caithness Breeding at the 2007 Magic Millions Adelaide Sale) now has 6 wins & 5 placings from 14 starts for $152,025 earnings.
