Black Vanquish Wins Listed Thoroughbred Club Cup
At Caulfield in Melbourne, Darley's former Australian Champion Sire & 11-time Gr1-winning World Champion Miler Lonhro (Octagonal-Shadea, by Straight Strike) added a black-type success when 2YO colt Black Vanquish (Lonhro-Ponton Flyer, by Flying Spur) scored by 0.2-length for trainer Tom Hughes in the $120,000 Listed Thoroughbred Club Cup (1200m) for 2YOs, over 2YO fillies Payroll (Not A Single Doubt-Workhard, by Red Ransom) & Pearl Star (Starcraft-Pearl Of The Sea, by Fastnet Rock). This was the first stakes victory for the promising Black Vanquish who took his record to 2 wins from 3 starts for $141,500 earnings. Black Vanquish is out of Gr2 Kewney Stakes winner Ponton Flyer and is a full-brother to stakes winner Minnesota Shark.
