Monday, 18th May 2015

At Morphettville in South Australia, Darley's former Champion Australian Sire Exceed And Excel (Danehill-Patrona, by Lomond) celebrated a Gr1 success when 5YO gelding Flamberge (Exceed and Excel-Razor Blade, by Blazing Sword) scored a surprise 0.7-length win for trainer Peter Moody in the $500,000 Gr1 Goodwood (1200m) for 3YO+, over 4YO entires Lord Of The Sky (Danerich-Princess Abassi, by Abassi) & Under The Louvre (Excellent Art-Barcelona Girl, by Noverre). Flamberge took his record to 8 wins (including the Gr3 Heath Stakes, Gr3 Sebring Stakes & Gr3 Standish Handicap) & 8 placings (including the Gr2 Rubiton Stakes & Gr3 Kevin Heffernan Stakes) from 27 starts for $990,300 earnings. A homebred for newly elected Racing Victoria chairman David Moodie's Contract Racing, Flamberge is a full brother to dual Listed winner Curtana and a half-brother to Gr2 winner Sunburnt Land (Scenic) from the brilliant Gr3-winning sprinter Razor Blade.
