At Royal Randwick in Sydney, deceased dual-Derby winning stallion & former Coolmore shuttler Montjeu (Sadler's Wells-Floripedes, by Top Ville) celebrated an elite success when 5YO Irish-bred gelding Gallante (Montjeu-Crazy Volume, by Machiavellian) scored a front-running 1.3 length win for trainer Robert Hickmott in the $2 million Gr1 Sydney Cup (3200m) for 3YO+, over fellow 5YO Irish-bred gelding Libran (Lawman-True Crystal, by Sadler's Wells) & 6YO UK-bred gelding Gran Marshal (Dansili-Margarula, by Doyoun). Registering his first stakes victory since arriving in Australia, the Lloyd & nick Williams-owned Gallante took his record to 4 wins (including the Gr1 Grand Prix de Paris) and 3 placings (including the Gr3 Manion Cup) from 14 starts for $1,934,830 earnings.
