Major win for 'Dan'



Promising four-year-old Majordan, who was bred and raised by Benstud Standardbreds, became the fourth winner left by our outstanding matron Benelise when he defeated a top field in the Group 3 $30,000 Country Clubs Championship Final at Melton on Saturday (May 6).


Starting from the No. 2 gate, the gelding pinged straight to the front and was never afterwards headed.


He rated a slick 1:56.1 for the 2240 metres trip with the last two quarters in 28.3 and 27.5.


It was his sixth win from 11 starts this season and his 11th lifetime success. He boasts a bankroll of $78,808.


Majordan joins Soho Valencia, Niki No No and Yrubla as Group winners out of Benelise.
