Asylum Seeker Wins Gr1 SAf Golden Slipper

Tuesday, 4th July 2006

To go with Eyeofthetiger's Gr1 Durban July Handicap win, Coolmore's shuttle stallion Royal Academy (Nijinsky-Crimson Saint, by Crimson Satan) went within a length and a short-neck of making it a Gr1 double at Greyville's Durban July meeting in South Africa. That was the margin to 3rd placed Bridget's Academy (Royal Academy-Pokey Hill, by Rory's Jester), who finished adrift of Asylum Seeker (Count Dubois-Running North, by Northfields) & Ghost Writer (London News-Princess Ampato, by Our Casey's Boy) in the R250,000 ($50,000) Gr1 2YO Golden Slipper (1400m) for fillies. The winner was ridden by Donovan Habib for Roy Magnier. Bridget's Academy was a $100,000 yearling at the 2005 Magic Millions Premier Yearling Sale on the Gold Coast.
