Chinchilla Rose Wins Sweet Embrace Stakes
Ill-fated Oaklands Stud stallion Lion Hunter (Danehill-Pure Of Heart, by Godswalk) added a juvenile group success when undefeated daughter Chinchilla Rose (Lion Hunter-Chiara, by Last Tycoon) scored by a neck in the $100,000 Gr3 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m) for 2YO fillies at Randwick. Chinchilla Rose (ridden by Stathi Katsidis for trainer Steele Ryan) defeated Vecchia Roma (Testa Rossa-Mirror Image, by Rustic Amber) & Moonboat (Encosta De Lago-Moon Cha Cha, by Marscay). Chinchilla Rose (passed-in as a yearling for $420,000 at the 2006 Inglis Premier Sale in Melbourne) now has 2 successive victories (following her debut win over 1110m at Doomben on February 3) for $109,800 earnings.
