Achilleus Continues Successful Association

Ed and Robyn Shakespeare who live just outside Geelong, continued their long association with the Darren Weir stable when Achilleus, a gelding they bred from their small broodmare band, won a 1000m Maiden at Warrnambool last Monday.

A half brother to Cargo Cult which won the Listed Sir John Dillon Stakes, Achilleus was having his first start in nine months. The Shakespeares also race last start Ballarat winner Shiny And New and the promising city winner Hurdy Gurdy Man. However, one of their best horses was Celtic Bloom, which won seven races from 1200m to 2200m.

They sold her when her racing days were over but bought her second foal, a filly by Dylan Thomas at this year's Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale.
