Back To Back Wins In Dequetteville Stakes

When Darren Weir's very promising two-year-old filly Manhattan Maid fought back courageously to narrowly win last Sunday's Listed $100,000 Dequetteville Stakes at Morphettville, it broke a 17 year drought. He's now the first trainer since David Hayes back in 1993 and 1994 to win the race in consecutive years. While last year's winner Broadway Harmony then had one more run that preparation in Brisbane, Manhattan Maid went straight to the paddock after arriving back home. She was "Weiry's''

15th winner in Adelaide this season and started off a great day for Melbourne jockey Ben Melham who also won the $100,000 Laelia Stakes on Ain'tnofallenstar and later the Group 1 $350,000 SA Derby on Shadows In The Sun.
