Kuro Wins Listed Mick Dittman Plate
At Doomben in Brisbane, Darley's Gr1 Golden Rose Stakes-winning stallion Denman (Lonhro-Peach, by Vain) added a black-type success when 3YO colt Kuro (Denman-Distinctive Lass, by Orientate) scored by 0.4-length for trainer Joseph Pride in the $100,000 Listed Mick Dittman Plate (1200m) for 3YOs, over 3YO geldings Sarajevo (Lonhro-Laleta, by Danehill) & Deiheros (Bon Hoffa-Philippa's Music, by Integra). Kuro took his record to 6 wins (including the Listed Brian Crowley Stakes & Listed Heritage Stakes) and 3 placings (including the Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes) from 12 starts for $416,050 earnings. Kuro is raced by Champion Thoroughbreds who purchased him for $170,000 at the 2013 NZB Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Curraghmore Stud.
