At Morphettville racecourse in Adelaide, deceased former 6-time Chilean Champion Sire Hussonet (Mr Prospector-Sacahuista, by Raja Baba), who relocated from Arrowfield Stud to stand at Cornerstone Stud, added a Group success when 8YO gelding Karacatis (Hussonet-One in a Million, by Redoute's Choice) claimed his third career stakes victory and his first since September 2014 in the $175,000 Gr3 DC McKay Stakes (1100m) for 3YO+, defeating Reldas & Kaepernick. A $120,000 purchase at the 2010 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale from the draft of Amarina Farm, Karacatis improved his record to 11 wins (including the Listed W.H. Wylie Handicap & Listed MRC Christmas Stakes) and 15 placings from 50 starts for $646,530 earnings.
