Brockman's Lass Wins Port Adelaide Guineas
Coolmore stallion Encosta de Lago (Fairy King-Shoal Creek by Star Way) added a black-type success when his favoured daughter Brockman's Lass (Encosta de Lago-Deal Me Out, by Final Card) defeated the males & scored a half-length win in the $75,000 Listed Port Adelaide Guineas (1800m) for 3YOs at Cheltenham. Brockman's Lass (ridden by Peter Mertens for trainer Lee Freedman) defeated fellow filly Absolute Dream (Canny Lad-Absolute Queen, by Royal Academy) & the gelding Tora Tora Tora (Tayasu Tsuyoshi-Live Comedy, by Rory's Jester). Brockman's Lass (a $75,000 yearling at the 2004 Magic Millions Perth Premier Sale) now has 5 wins (also including the Listed John West Stakes over 1800m in November & Listed Mornmoot Stud Stakes over 1600m in October) & a runner-up in 10 starts for $299,275 prize-money.
