At Flemington in Melbourne, former Arrowfield shuttler and Kentucky Derby & World Cup winner Animal Kingdom (Leroidesanimaux–Dalicia, by Acatenango) sired his first stakes winner in Australia when 3YO Australian-bred gelding Wild Planet (Animal Kingdom-Salutations, by Redoute's Choice) held off the late challenge of his rivals to hold on for a narrow win in the $120,000 Listed Antler Luggage Stakes (1400m) for 3YOs, defeating the desperately unlucky Ranier & Khulaasa. Purchased by Hawkes Racing & Andrew Williams Bloodstock for $280,000 at the 2017 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale from the draft of Arrowfield Stud, Wild Planet improved his record to 2 wins and 2 placings (including the Listed Moonee Valley Pearl & Listed Anzac day Stakes) from 6 starts for $129,800 in earnings.
