At Caulfield in Melbourne, Scenic Lodge's VRC Derby-winning sire Blackfriars (Danehill-Kensington Gardens, by Grosvenor) added a Group success when 5YO gelding Black Heart Bart (Blackfriars-Sister Theresa, by At Talaq) scored by 0.3-length for trainer Darren Weir in the $150,000 Gr3 Victoria Handicap (1400m) for 3YO+, over 6YO gelding Charmed Harmony (Hussonet-Magic Harmony, by Danehill Dancer) & 4YO gelding Eclair Choice (California Dane-Bounce, by Woodman). This was the first eastern states victory for the former WA-trained Black Heart Bart who advanced his record to 11 wins (including the Gr2 Lee Steere Stakes , Gr3 WATC Northerly Stakes, Listed Birthday Stakes, Listed Bunbury Stakes, Listed Pinjarra Classic, Listed Cyril Flower Stakes, Listed WATC Carbine Club of WA Stakes & Listed WATC Summer Scorcher) and 9 placings (including the Gr1 Newmarket Handicap & Gr3 WATC Asian Beau Stakes) from 28 starts for $1,258,050 earnings. The well-related Black Heart Bart is out of a half-sister to New Zealand Oaks winner Savannah Success, dam of Cox Plate winner and outstanding young stallion Savabeel and Lincoln Farm stallion Arlington.
