Leone Chiara Wins Wylie Handicap
Ill-fated Oaklands Stud stallion Lion Hunter (Danehill-Pure Of Heart, by Godswalk) also added a black-type success when 6YO mare Leone Chiara (Lion Hunter-Chiara) snatched a half-head victory in the $50,000 Listed Wylie Handicap (1100m) at Morphettville in Adelaide. Leone Chiara (ridden by Mark Pegus for trainer Danny O'Brien) defeated 5YO gelding El Maze (El Moxie-Almazyoon) & 8YO gelding Lord Mick (Lord Ballina-Karman Gal). Leone Chiara (passed-in for $52,500 as a yearling at the 2001 Inglis Sires Produce Sale in Sydney) now has 6 wins & a runner-up in 19 starts for $250,800 prize-money.
