Thursday, 13th July 2006

In Australia yesterday, Alanbridge Stud stallion Beautiful Crown (Chief's Crown-Beautiful Glass, by Pass The Glass) added a black-type success when 6YO gelding For Valour (Beautiful Crown-Quick Glance, by Palace Music) came from last to snatch victory in a 3-way photo-finish to the $125,000 Listed Ramornie Handicap (1200m) at Grafton in NSW. Starting at 40-1, For Valour (ridden by Lacy Morrison for trainer Mitchell Hudson) scored by a long-head from 8YO gelding Words Of Magic (Magic Ring-Love Of Words, by Esperanto) with a further long-neck to 5YO gelding Dan City (Citidancer-Philotious, by Rivotious). For Valour (a $12,000 yearling at the 2001 QBBS Sale in Queensland) finished 4th in this race last year; overall he now has 7 wins & 12 placings (including both the Listed June Stakes over 1100m at Randwick on June 10 & 2005 Listed Show County Quality over 1200m at Randwick) from 41 starts for $316,050 earnings.
