Mr Celebrity Wins Gr1 George Main Stakes

Monday, 26th September 2005

In Australia, former Coolmore shuttler Peintre Celebre (Nureyev-Peinture Bleue, by Alydar) recorded his 7th individual Gr1 winner when 5YO gelding Mr Celebrity (Peintre Celebre-Lamora, by Marscay) grabbed victory in a thrilling 3-way photo-finish to the $350,000 weight-for-age Gr1 George Main Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick in Sydney. Mr Celebrity (ridden by Len Beasley for trainer Gai Waterhouse) won by a head from 4YO mare Shania Dane (Danehill-Subterfuge, by Machiavellian) with a further short-head to 4YO entire Outback Prince (Desert Prince-Terrestial, by Star Watch). Mr Celebrity (a $280,000 yearling at the 2002 Inglis Easter Sale) now has 6 wins & a runner-up in 8 starts for $336,350 prize-money.
