At Moonee Valley, Gr1-winning Darley shuttler & 2007 Gr1 Kentucky Derby runner-up Hard Spun (Danzig-Turkish Tryst, by Turkoman) added a group success when 4YO mare Text'n Hurley (Hard Spun-Angels, by Quest for Fame) scored by 2.5-lengths for trainer Colin Little in the $220,000 Gr2 Sunline Stakes (1600m) for 4YO+ mares, over fellow 4YO mares Bippo No Bungus (Dubawi-Quest for Pleasure, by Quest for Fame) & You're So Good (Savabeel-Lightning Spur, by Flying Spur). This was the first stakes victory for Text'n Hurley which took her record to 5 wins and 5 placings (including the Gr3 Schweppervescence Trophy) from 12 starts for $366,985 earnings. Text'n Hurley was purchased by William Inglis as agent for $45,000 at the 2011 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Oakford Thoroughbred Farm.
