Exchequer Wins Strickland Stakes
Deceased Newhaven Park Stud stallion Marauding (Sir Tristram-Biscalowe, by Biscay) added a group success when 6YO gelding Exchequer (Marauding-Double Your Bet, by Palace Music) gained the verdict in a 3-way photo-finish to the $100,000 weight-for-age Gr3 Strickland Stakes (1800m) at Ascot. Exchequer (ridden by William Pike for trainer Lindsey Smith) won by a long-head from consistent 5YO mare Professional Lady (Tip The Pro-Chiffon Lady, by Ifrad) with a further nose to favoured 4YO mare Belle Bizarre (Dauberval-Baltriomphe, by Balmerino). Exchequer (a $210,000 yearling at the 2001 Inglis Easter Sale) now has 7 wins & 2 placings in 17 starts for $181,030 prize-money.
