The speedy filly Meryl became the first multiple Stakes winner for her sire Epaulette when she raced to a brilliant win in the G3 Scarborough Stakes at Moonee Valley on Friday, 28 September.

Meryl became Epaulette’s first Group winner when she led throughout to take out the G3 BJ McLachlan Stakes in Brisbane as a two-year-old.

Epaulette’s dam, the Singspiel mare Accessories, has also produced the Stakes winners Pearls and Bullbars.

Epaulette is standing the current southern hemisphere season at Kelvinside NSW at   A$27,500, including GST.
