Dane Julia Wins SAf Gr1 3YO Fillies Classic
Among the females, unbeaten Dane Julia (Caesour-Precious Julia, by Danehill) scored her 5th successive victory with a short-head win in the R500,0000 (A$85,000) Gr1 SA Fillies Classic (1800m) for 3YO fillies at Turffontein. Dan Julia (ridden by Piere Strydom for trainer Buddy Maroun) defeated fast-finishing Angel Flight (Fahal-Flying Mary, by Aeropasser) & front-running Star Of The Sea (Fort Wood-Skimming, by Coastal). At her previous start Dan Julia won February's Gr2 Gauteng Fillies Guineas (1600m) at Turffontein. Her dam Precious Julia was a $115,000 purchase at the 1997 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney.
