Above Deck Wins JRA Plate

Tuesday, 18th April 2006

Collingrove Stud stallion Bianconi (Danzig-Fall Aspen, by Pretense) added a black-type success when favoured 4YO gelding Above Deck (Bianconi-Hafla, by At Talaq) led all-the-way to score a 2-lengths win in yesterday's $100,000 Listed Japan Racing Association Plate (2000m) at Randwick. Above Deck (ridden by Glen Boss for trainer Jim Conlan) defeated Gr1-winning fellow 4YO gelding Jymcarew (Danzero-Aperto, by Grosvenor) & 4YO mare Kosi Bay (Spinning World-Calvinia, by Varick). Above Deck (a $50,000 yearling at the 2003 Inglis Melbourne Premier Sale) now has 8 wins & 6 placings (including runner-up last start in the Listed Manion Cup over 2400m at Rosehill on April 1) in 25 starts for $393,050 earnings.
