In the first race on the card, Nathan Doyle was in the winner’s circle with Snitzel colt Reigning King, who scored by a length over 1100m at his third start.

A $400,000 Inglis Easter purchase from Evergreen Stud for Shane Nichols Racing / Horse Ventures, Reigning King had one start in Victoria last preparation for Shane Nichols before joining the Nathan Doyle stable.

He is a half-brother to dual Group I winner and Champion 2YO Filyl She Will Reign and Group II ATC Silver Slipper Stakes winner Time to Reign being the sixth winner from seven foals to race from Courgette, who was bought for $2.1million at the 2018 Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale by E Thoroughbreds.

Courgette died in 2021 and Reigning King is her final foal.
