20/05/02 Calming too Good in Davenport Classic
The Victorian riding domination of Adelaide Cup Day continued at Morphettville when Brett Prebble booted home Calming to win the listed Liz Davenport Classic this afternoon.

Prebble, who'd won the previous race aboard the Barry James trained Sylvaner, made it a race to race double when he guided the mare home to a hard fought win.

It looked as though a local trainer would taste success when the Leon Macdonald trained Regal Kiss skipped clear at the top of the straight, but she couldn't hold out the finishing burst of Calming.

The four-year-old mare, a daughter of Zeditave, is one of a group of horses who were syndicated by Prime Thoroughbreds, a syndication company managed by Joe O'Neill.

O'Neill was on track with a group of the owners to cheer home the mare to her listed race success.

"She's been a wonderful mare Calming," O'Neill said. "This is now the fourth state she has won in."

Connections targeted the Liz Davenport Classic with Calming up to "six months ago," so today's result was a sweet reward for the forward planning of Sydney based trainer Bill Mitchell.

When the line was reached Calming, a winner of six of her 23 starts, had a half length advantage over the local filly Regal Kiss. Third home was Belle Ball, who was a further two lengths in arrears.
