Mr Ubiquitous Wins Royal Parma Stakes
Coolmore shuttler Tale Of The Cat (Storm Cat-Yarn, by Mr Prospector) also added a black-type success when 6YO gelding Mr Ubiquitous (Tale Of The Cat-Zahra, by Zabeel) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the $100,000 Listed Royal Parma Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill. Mr Ubiquitous (ridden by Damien Oliver for trainer Chris Waller) scored by a half-head from 5YO gelding Mystery City (Langfuhr-Trouble In Mind, by Canonise) with a further half-neck to 4YO mare A Country Girl (Singspiel-Verdict Declared, by Mr Henrysee). Mr Ubiquitous (a NZ$85,000 yearling at the 2002 NZ Bloodstock Premier Sale in Karaka) now has 6 wins & 14 placings (including 2006's Gr3 Helvetica Stakes over 1400m & Listed Winter Stakes also over 1400m) from 53 starts for $375,144 earnings.
