At Flemington racecourse in Melbourne, former Darley and now Aquis Farm Gr2-winning stallion Domesday (Red Ransom-In the Past, by Zafonic) added a black-type success when 3YO bay colt Royal Symphony (Domesday-Naturalist, by Palace Music) overcame difficulties in running to score a stunning win in the $120,000 Listed Pin & Win Plate (1400m) for 3YOs, defeating Éclair Sunrise & Sebfire. Bred at Wingrove Park in Victoria, Royal Symphony, who hails from the family of three-time Gr1 winner Naturalism, extended his unbeaten record to 4 wins (including the Listed Taj Rossi Series Final) from 4 starts for $215,150 in earnings. Trainer Tony McEvoy confirmed that Royal Symphony's primary spring target is the $1 million Gr1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield racecourse on 14 October. "That was very special," McEvoy told racing.com. "The way he picked up late was the sort of thing that only special horses do." McEvoy added: "His next run will either be the Guineas Prelude or the Stutt Stakes and his condition will tell me whether he needs to go to the mile or stay at seven furlongs."
