Saturday’s winners on breeding


Stakes honours on the day went to Coolmore Stud’s former champion stallion High Chaparral, with his daughter Mississippi Delta winning the $100,000 Listed ATA Stakes. Mississippi Delta is the half-sister to the ill-fated Group 1 winning mare Elite Belle and Group 3 winner Battle Emblem.

Local stallions claimed four of the eight races – Universal Ruler (Scenic Lodge), Ouqba (Heytesbury Stud), Zentsov Street (Yarradale Stud) and Viscount (Oakland Park Stud).
