Dane Ripper Filly Wins In Japan
In Japan, Australia-bred 2YO filly Cosmo Merveille (Fasliyev-Dane Ripper) defeated the males (& was also racing against Northern hemisphere 3YOs) over 1800m on dirt at Nakayama. Cosmo Merveille (a $600,000 yearling at the 2005 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) had finished runner-up on debut on March 19. She is the 3rd foal from Gr1 Cox Plate winner Dane Ripper (who has a Fusaichi Pegasus colt in this year's Easter Sale, consigned by Coolmore Stud as agent). Cosmo Merveille is owned & raced by Big Red Farm's Shigeyuki Okada.
