High Cee Wins Ajax Stakes

Monday, 26th March 2007

Former Collingrove shuttler Marju (Last Tycoon-Flame Of Tara, by Artaius) added a group success when 5YO gelding High Cee (Marju-Sweet Vienna, by Dahar) snatched victory by a nose in the $150,000 G2 Ajax Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill. Despite drifting out markedly in the straight, High Cee (ridden by Zac Purton for trainer Bart Cummings) hit the lead in his final stride to defeat 3YO gelding Danleigh (Mujahid-Graceful Lily, by Dr Grace) & favoured 4YO gelding The Free Stater (Over-Papier Mache, by Straight Strike). High Cee (a NZ$400,000 yearling at the 2003 NZ Bloodstock Premier Sale at Karaka) now has 5 wins (also including the 2005 Gr3 Newcastle Cup over 2300m) & 6 placings (including last start's Gr3 Newcastle Newmarket over 1400m on March 14) from 20 starts for $302,265 earnings.
