At Gosford racecourse on the NSW Central Coast, Darley's Gr1 Golden Rose Stakes-winning stallion Denman (Lonhro-Peach, by Vain) added a black-type success when 5YO gelding Kuro (Denman-Distinctive Lass, by Orientate) scored by 1 length for trainer Joseph Pride in the $125,000 Listed Takeover Target Stakes (1200m) for 3YO+, over 7YO Irish-bred gelding His Majesty (Shamardal-Princess Serena, by Unbridled's Song) & 6YO gelding and stable-mate Ball Of Muscle (Dubawi-Parfore, by Gold Brose). Kuro improved his record to 8 wins (including the Listed Starlight Stakes, Listed Mick Dittman Plate, Listed Brian Crowley Stakes & Listed Heritage Stakes) and 8 placings (including the Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes & Gr1 Galaxy) from 27 starts for $654,525 earnings.
