Craftsman (Mastercraftsman) winning the Gr.3 Killavullan Stakes at Leopardstown

US Stakes-Winner for Mastercraftsman

Winner of the Gr.3 Killavullan Stakes (pictured) in Ireland, Craftsman (3c Mastercraftsman x Weekend Fling, by Forest Wildcat) proved his mettle in the US when taking out the Nick Shuk Memorial Stakes at Delaware. Previously trained by Aidan O’Brien and now with Graham Motion, Craftsman strode clear to win the seven and a half furlong contest by a length and three-quarters. With three wins from nine starts, Craftsman is the best performer for his dam Weekend Fling, a half-sister to US Grade I winner Archarcharch.
