David Junior Wins Gr1 Eclipse Stakes

Monday, 10th July 2006

At Sandown in England, despite easing to 2nd favourite, 4YO entire David Junior (Pleasant Tap-Paradise River, by Irish River) took advantage of the pace set by stablemate Royal Alchemist to win the £425,000 ($1.05 million) Gr1 Eclipse Stakes (10 furlongs). The pre-post favourite, David Junior was wound out by bookmakers as a result of sustained support for Ouija Board, however the Cape Cross mare, looking to make it Gr1 win number 6, struck severe traffic and failed to fill a place. Ridden by Jamie Spencer for trainer Brian Meehan, David Junior defeated fellow 4YO entire Notnowcato (Inchinor-Rambling Rose, by Cadeaux Genereux) & 5YO gelding Blue Monday (Darshaan-Lunda, by Soviet Star).
