Pasikatera Wins James Carr Stakes
Former Gr1 Kentucky Derby winner & Coolmore shuttler Thunder Gulch (Gulch-Line Of Thunder, by Storm Bird) added a black-type success when front-running daughter Pasikatera (Thunder Gulch-Vain Deb, by Vain) gained the verdict in a 3-way photo-finish to the $100,000 Listed James Carr Stakes (1400m) for 3YO fillies at Randwick. Pasikatera (ridden by Jamie Innes for trainer Gai Waterhouse) won by a long-head from At Ease (Canny Lad-Southern Royale, by Salieri) with a further short-neck to Divine Madonna (Hurricane Sky-My Madonna, by Prego). Pasikatera (a $500,000 yearling at the 2005 Inglis Easter Sale) now has 4 wins (also including the Listed Keith Nolan Classic over 1600 on March 29 & the 2005 Listed Widden Stakes) & 3 placings (including the Gr2 Woodstock Classic over 1500m in February) from 15 starts for $255,775 earnings.
