The result of the weekend came from Tribal Wisdom (Makfi) who scored on the final day of The Championships when successful in the last at Randwick over 1400m on Saturday.
The Mike Moroney-trained Tribal Wisdom was given the perfect run by jockey Kerrin McEvoy sitting third on the fence before getting through to hit the lead at the right time and go on for a brave win.
Tribal Wisdom, a descendant of 1989 Japan Cup winner Horlicks, was bred by Consolidated Bloodstock and selected by bloodstock agent Paul Moroney.
Belle Du Nord (Reliable Man) collected valuable black type when running third in the Gr.3 Schweppervescence Stakes (1800m) at Morphettville. Trainers David and Emma-Lee Browne were encouraged by the run, saying she was given a brilliant ride by jockey Zac Spain from a wide gate and will take improvement heading into the Gr.1 Australian Oaks (2000m) on May 5.
Lisdoonvarna (Super Easy), who was bred in partnership by Gordon Cunningham and Hallmark Stud, stepped up to stakes class for the first time in the Gr.3 James Carr Stakes (1400m) at Randwick. She put in a good effort to jump from a wide barrier (12) and travelled wide to finish seventh just 3.7 lengths off the winner, confirming she was not out of place at black type level.
Long Leaf (Fastnet Rock) was having his fourth consecutive start at Group One level when lining up in the Champagne Stakes (1600m) at Randwick. He raced wide and did not find the line confirming he is ready for a spell.
“He got posted from the draw. He was holding okay but got galloped on quite badly in the last furlong. He will run a mile and be a better horse in the spring,” jockey Kerrin McEvoy said.
