Flying Spur Adds Irish Black-Type
In Ireland, Arrowfield Stud stallion Flying Spur (Danehill-Rolls, by Mr Prospector) added a black-type success when 7YO gelding Osterhase (Flying Spur-Ostrusa, by Rustan) grabbed victory by a head in the €55,000 (A$88,000) Listed Belgrave Stakes (6 furlongs) at Fairyhouse. Osterhase (ridden by Fran Berry for trainer John Mulhern) defeated Borderlescott (Compton Place-Jeewan, by Touching Wood) & That's Hot (Namid-Smoke Lady, by Barathea). Osterhase also won last month's Listed Naas Sprint Stakes (5 furlongs) & last season Osterhase led all-the-way to win Ireland's Gr3 Phoenix Sprint (6 furlongs) at The Curragh.
