At Morphettville racecourse in Adelaide, French 2000 Guineas & French Derby-winning shuttler Lope De Vega (Shamardal-Lady Vettori, by Vettori) added a black-type success when 5YO bay gelding Lope De Capio (Lope de Vega-Dance of the Ocean, by Danzero) made it two stakes wins in succession when landing the $100,000 Listed Durbridge Stakes (1200m) for 3YO+, defeating Casino Wizard & Lord Aspen.
