Cape Cross Adds UK Gr3

Monday, 26th September 2005

Darley shuttler Cape Cross (Green Desert-Park Appeal, by Ahonoora) added an English group success when Lord Derby's home-bred champion 4YO mare Ouija Board (Cape Cross-Selection Board, by Welsh Pageant) returned from a stress fracture to a cannon bone suffered in June to win the Gr3 Princess Royal Stakes by 2.5-lengths at Newmarket, reported thoroughbredinternet.com. Ouija Board (ridden by Frankie Dettori for trainer Ed Dunlop) defeated Briolette (by Sadler's Wells) & Asawer (by Darshaan). Last year Ouija Board won the US Eclipse Award for champion turf female following her scintillating win in the US Gr1 Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf; she is currently preparing for an October 29 defence of that Breeders' Cup victory.
