Gooree Stud won the opening event at Canterbury on Friday evening with a lightly raced James Cummings trained gelding from one of their favourite female families.
Winner of the Listed Maribyrnong Trial Stakes at Flemington when making her career debut just over 12 months ago, Bel Esprit filly Sweet Sherry needed another seven starts to add a second stakes victory, which came in Saturday's $120,000 Listed Bertocchi Crockett Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley.
Twelve months ago Keen Array looked to have the world at his feet when he earned his first stakes victory in the Blue Sapphire Stakes followed by a second in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes.
Keen Array again demonstrated his liking for the Caulfield track with a hard-fought win over the fast-finishing Well Sprung in Saturday's Listed Testa Rossa Stakes (1200m).
