Sliding Cube Wins Listed AJC Keith Mackay Handicap

Thursday, 12th April 2007

Coolmore Stud's exciting freshman 2YO sire Rock Of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) celebrated an exciting juvenile stakes quinella at Randwick when undefeated filly Sliding Cube (Rock Of Gibraltar-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) won yesterday's $100,000 Listed AJC Keith Mackay Handicap (1200m) for 2YOs from fellow filly Gamble Me (Rock Of Gibraltar-Good Gamble, by Pleasant Tap). Ridden by Jamie Innes for trainer Gai Waterhouse, the half-sister to Arrowfield Stud's reigning champion sire Redoute's Choice made it 2 starts for 2 wins for earnings of $76,250, and as a future breeding prospect alone her worth is already into 7 figures. Despite being headed in the straight by Gamble Me, Sliding Cube fought back strongly to win by a neck. Third placing went to Mega Lass (Bite The Bullet-Erin, by Brief Truce), who was a further 2.25 lengths adrift in 3rd.
