Quote from Westbury Stud´s Facebook
"Huge win by the Reliable Man gelding Sully at Bendigo today as he came from near last - ducked in sharply with 200m to run - and still got up and won!
Trained by Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young, Sully was the only 3YO in the race and showed an excellent turn-of-foot from the 500m to the line.
While he is very green, the raw talent is evident and he looks to have a bright future!"

   Becoming the first black-type winner for her first-season sire, Narella built on the promise of her debut win at Cologne July 9 to maintain her unbeaten record with authority. Settled towards the rear early, the 7-2 second favourite was delivered wide in the straight by Adrie de Vries and after taking over approaching the furlong pole drew away in style to beat Auenperle (Ger) (Areion {Ger}) by two lengths, with the 17-10 market leader Julio (Ger) (Exceed and Excel {Aus}) four lengths back in third.
