A tidy, professional performance carried Gaulois to victory in the Listed Rowley Mile at Hawkesbury, NSW, giving him his second Stakes success.

A winner in the same grade three runs earlier at Rosehill, Gaulois took up a perfect position from the start and raced in fourth place, one-off the fence, until jockey Tim Clark called on him at the 400m.

The five-year-old joined the lead soon after straightening and quickly put the race away in the next 100m, going to the line untouched to score by a half-length from Supernova.

Gaulois is a member of the final southern-hemisphere crop of Darley’s prolific stallion Street Cry.

Thursday’s win was his sixth from 27 starts that have also produced a further 13 placings.
