16/9/2019 11 for Hard Spun

Darley stallion Hard Spun (Danzig) sired his 11th top-flight winner yesterday when Gatting (6 g ex Stubborn by Lonhro) caused a major upset in the Makybe Diva Stakes (Gr 1, 1600m) at Flemington. The victory was a significant improvement in form for the six-year-old gelding having most recently been seen running last of five in the Idyllic Prince Stakes (Listed, 1300m) in Perth. The Daniel McAuliffe-trained Gatting has now won 11 of his 38 starts which has seen him earn $1,896,200 in career prize-money.
