Press The Button Wins Reisling Stakes
Coolmore stallion Encosta de Lago (Fairy King-Shoal Creek by Star Way) added a juvenile group success when daughter Press The Button (Encosta De Lago-Clouding Over, by Thunder Gulch) scored a 0.75-lengths victory in the $300,000 Gr2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) for 2YO fillies at Rosehill. Press The Button (ridden by Glen Boss for trainer David Hayes) defeated Hurried Choice (Choisir-Hustle Bustle, by Catrail) & the winner's stable-mate Sleek Chassis (Flying Spur-Tigereye, by Kaapstad). Press The Button (a $180,000 yearling at the 2006 Magic Millions Premier Sale) now has 2 wins (also including November's Listed Merson Cooper Stakes over 1000m at Sandown) from 3 starts for $283,200 earnings.
