23/03/02 Australia Stakes Tragedy: Black Bean Destroyed
0325blackbean.jpg (11820 bytes)In a sad twist to today’s Group One Australia Stakes at Moonee Valley Group One winner Black Bean was put down after breaking down badly.

The gelding was eased out of the race near the 800 metres mark by his jockey Brett Prebble in the 1200 metre event.

A member of the Mathew Ellerton stable, the son of Raami, was having his 39th start in today’s feature event, which was taken by the eight-year-old veteran Toledo.

Despite having not won a race for neary a year and a half Black Bean had still managed an excellent record of eight wins, five seconds and two thirds and stakes earnings of $1,356,490.

A striking looking six-year-old Black Bean was raced by David and Jenny Moodie’s Contract Racing Pty Ltd Syndicate.
