Imana Wins Birthday Card Stakes
Former Gr1 Kentucky Derby winner & Coolmore shuttler Thunder Gulch (Gulch-Line Of Thunder, by Storm Bird) added a group success when 5YO mare Imana (Thunder Gulch-Zarissa, by Zabeel) scored a 1.75-lengths win in the $100,000 Gr3 Birthday Card Stakes (1200m) for fillies & mares at Rosehill. Imana (ridden by Hugh Bowman for trainer Guy Walter) defeated 6YO mare Freeroller (Royal Academy-Zabori, by Zabeel) & 4YO mare Tactfully (Flying Spur-Discretion, by Canny Lad). Imana now has 5 wins & 11 placings (including the Gr3 Breeders' Classic over 1200m on February 18, plus last year's Listed Nivison Quality over 1200m in September & Listed Sheraco Stakes over 1100m in August) in 27 starts for $232,850 earnings.
