At Morphettville in South Australia, Greta West Stud's Gr1 Caulfield Guineas-winning stallion God's Own (Redoute's Choice-Angel In Disguise, by Sky Chase) added a black-type success when 7YO gelding Mio Dio (God's Own-Hageabi , by Scenic) scored a gritty 0.4-length victory for trainer Todd Pannell in the $120,000 Gr3 Spring Stakes (1200m) for 3YO+, over 6YO gelding Lord Aspen and 5YO gelding Casino Wizard. This was the first stakes victory for Mio Dio and took his record to 11 wins & 12 placings from 55 starts for $378,265 earnings. Mio Dio was a bargain $5,000 yearling purchase from the 2011 August Thoroughbred Sale from the draft of Basinghall Farm. He is from a three-quarter sister to Gr1 Manikato Stakes winning filly Piavonic  (dam of Gr1 Golden Slipper runner-up and sire Von Costa De Hero).
