Royal Butler Keeps Sire's Record Intact

The little-known stallion Scandal Keeper, which stands in WA, kept his record intact when Royal Butler stormed home to win a 1350m Maiden at Donald. He's now had six runners to race for as many winners. The gelding was ridden by Jack Hill replacing Michelle Payne who was injured when her mount, stablemate El Divine knuckled over at the start of the first race. Royal Butler which was bought for $20,000 as a yearling by bloodstock agent John Foote at a Scone Inglis Sale, is raced by Carlton Football Club CEO Greg Swann. The win was the first leg of a double for the Darren Weir stable. Two races later, Rhodehaven, a new addition to the stable, powered down the middle of the track to win the Buloke Shire Handicap over 1200m. ‘Weiry’ is quickly closing in on 142 winners for the season, his best season since taking up training. Rhodehaven was the stable’s 131st for the season.
