Westerly Breeze Wins WA Oaks

Monday, 26th March 2007

Former Alwyn Park Stud sire Dr Johnson (Woodman-Russian Ballet, by Nijinsky) added a group success when consistent Westerly Breeze (Dr Johnson-Miss Thunderbolt, by Thunder Gulch) scored a 0.75-lengths victory in the $250,000 Gr3 West Australian Oaks (2400m) for 3YO fillies at Ascot in Perth. Westerly Breeze (ridden by William Pike for trainer Shane Edwards) defeated Dante's Dash (Dante's Fury-New World Order, by Defensive Play) & Celt Code (Mull Of Kintyre-Sercidium, by Serheed). Westerly Breeze (a $30,000 purchase as an unraced 2YO from the Astrix Dispersal at the 2006 Magic Millions Perth Thoroughbred Sale) now has 4 wins & 4 placings (including last start's Listed Natasha Stakes over 2200m at Ascot on March 10) from 8 starts for $204,200 earnings.
