At Balaklava in South Australia, Greta West Stud's Gr1 Caulfield Guineas winning stallion God's Own (Redoute's Choice-Angel In Disguise, by Sky Chase) added a black-type success when 5YO gelding By The Grace (God's Own-Rain Dance Lady, by Jugah) scored by 1.4-lengths for trainer Andrew Noblet in the $100,000 Listed Balaklava Cup (1600m) for 3YO+, over 8YO gelding Little Akie (Akhadan-Double Spirits, by Blevic) & 7YO gelding Supreme Warrior (Golan-Paierau Princess, by Wallenda). This was the first stakes victory for By The Grace who took his record to 5 wins and 3 placings from 22 starts for $293,350 earnings. By The Grace was purchased for $40,000 by Andrew Noblet Racing at the 2012 Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale from the draft of Cornerstone Stud.
