Attraction Wins Irish Gr1 Matron Stakes
Cheveley Park Stud's dual classic-winning 4YO mare Attraction (Efisio-Flirtation, by Pursuit Of Love) led all-the-way to win the €250,000 (A$400,000) Gr1 Matron Stakes (8 furlongs) for fillies & mares at Leopardstown, reported thoroughbredtimes.com. Attraction (ridden by Kevin Darley for trainer Mark Johnston) "showed no signs of the troublesome fetlock injury sustained while finishing unplaced (behind Bullish Luck & Silent Witness) in the Gr1 Champions Mile at Sha Tin in May" as she defeated 5YO mare & recent English Gr2 Celebration Mile winner Chic (Machiavellian-Exclusive, by Polar Falcon) & English classic-winning 3YO filly Virginia Waters (Kingmambo-Legend Maker, by Sadler's Wells). Attraction now has 10 wins (including 5 at Gr1 level) in 15 starts.
