Rena's Lady Wins Gr1 AJC Oaks

Thursday, 12th April 2007

Lomar Park's stallion Arena (Danehill-Lee's Bid, by Tawfiq) added another major Gr1 Group success when filly Rena's Lady (Arena-Boisterous Lady, by Rivotious) won yesterday's $660,000 Gr1 AJC Oaks (2400m) for 3YO fillies at Randwick. The victory was her 2nd in 5 days, following her win last Saturday in the $150,000 Gr3 Adrian Knox Quality Stakes (2000m) for fillies at Randwick. The Adrian Knox is often a good pointer for the Oaks, and so it turned out, with Perfect Drop (Quest For Fame-Dane Vintage, by Danzero) again forced to chase the winner home. Michael Rodd, riding Rena's Lady for trainer Gary Portelli, rode a brilliant race by slowing the pace down and forcing backmarking favourites Tuesday Joy (Carnegie-Joie Denise, by Danehill) and Banc De Fortune to attempt to come from behind on a track which left a lot of runners on the day floundering. Tuesday Joy's class allowed her to just snatch 3rd. The win took Rena's Lady's overall record to 3 wins and 3 placings from 19 starts for earnings of $505,570.
