8/1/2019 Two for Whittington

Grandview Stud-based stallion Whittington (Tale Of The Cat) was provided with his second-first crop winner courtesy of Stampe’s (2 g ex Envelope by Monashee Mountain) victory in the Memberships 2YO Handicap (1110m) at Doomben yesterday. It was the Chris Munce-trained juvenile’s third career start he showed the benefit of previous experience to come home three and a quarter lengths clear of Neptune’s Spear (Super Easy), with a further half length back to Chill The Beer (Straight) in third. Whittington stood at Grandview Lodge for a fee of $6,600 in 2018 and Stampe joins Button Pusher as Whittington’s other winner.
