The Group 2 Hill Stakes was won by Lamasery at Royal Randwick Racecourse last Saturday September 22, 2012.
Lamasery won the race by a head in front of Mourayan, who finished second, and Lights Of Heaven, who passed the post in third.
The Commands gelding has now won 11 of his 21 race starts and has earned more than $600,000 in prize money.
Lamasery finished fourth in the Group 2 Warwick Stakes first-up this spring before placing third in the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes last start.
Trainer David Vandyke was thrilled that Lamasery was able to overcome injury to win a spring feature race.
“He might have been third-up today but to me, it feels like he was tenth-up,” Vandyke said.
“He’s been in work for eight months and it’s been a fantastic effort from everyone involved.
“He has only got a 300 metre sprint on him.
“(Jockey Peter Robl) nursed him for as long as he could and it was a good field today.
“That’s his best win and I’m over the moon.”
