Just days after being pensioned from stallion duties by Darley Australia, Exceed And Excel has sired his 19th Group 1 winner with Cylinder claiming the Newmarket Handicap at Flemington.

The only three-year-old in the field, Cylinder chartered a path down the outside of the famed ‘straight six’ course under Jamie Kah to upset the favourite Imperatriz in a 1-1/4 length win.

Cylinder joins another Godolphin colt in Bivouac as a son of Exceed And Excel to win the Newmarket.

Exceed And Excel won the famous sprint himself in 2004.
