Universal Queen Wins Yallambee Classic
Ill-fated former Durham Lodge stallion Scenic (Sadler's Wells-Idyllic, by Foolish Pleasure) added a group success when daughter Universal Queen (Scenic-Biscay Bird, by Bluebird) scored a 1.5-lengths victory against the males in yesterday's $200,000 Gr2 Yallambee Classic (1200m) for 3YOs at Morphettville. Universal Queen (ridden by Corey Brown for trainer Lee Freedman) defeated the gelding Pencelaron (Peintre Celebre-Abbaron, by Esperanto) & fellow filly Nediym's Glow (General Nediym-Palace Glow, by Palace Music). Universal Queen (a full sister to 4-time Gr1-winning AJC Derby victor & Baerami Thoroughbreds sire Universal Prince) now has 4 wins (also including the Gr3 The Vanity over 1200m at Moonee Valley on February 3 & 2006's Gr3 Sweet Embrace Stakes) & 2 placings from 12 starts for $373,950 earnings.
