Dashing Duke

It is never easy to win at debut but Devonshire Duke managed just that at Doomben on Wednesday, the promising two-year-old finding the line in determined fashion.

Kept safe on the back of a handy trial showing at the Sunshine Coast, the New Zealand bred son of the Goodwood Handicap winner Keeper gave owners Ballymore Stables, Rohan & Katherine Aujard, Noel & Judith Griffin, Peter Walker, Manfred & Michael Krauser and Gurners Bloodstock Co (manager Andrew Ramsden) plenty of reason to smile.

Nicely ridden by the in-form Chad Ormsby, Devonshire Duke is another winner for Paul Moroney who picked him up for NZ$60,000 at last year's Karaka sale.

His dam is the Gr.3 winning Honor Grades mare Bexley, half sister to the NZ Gr.1 winner Valley Of Carome from the family of the Gr.1 winners Key Dancer, Red Tempo and Jolly Jake.

Hopefully the stable's good recent run will continue on Saturday with two runners each at Flemington - Let It Ride and Flutter - and Eagle Farm - Tinseltown and As You Like It.
