Alverta Wins Listed Hawkesbury Guineas
Arrowfield Stud's stallion Flying Spur (Danehill-Rolls, by Mr. Prospector) had further stakes success oj the weekend at western-Sydney's Hawkesbury raceclub when 3YO filly Alverta (Flying Spur-Grilse, by Rahy) won the $100,000 Listed HRC Hawkesbury Guineas (1200m) for 3YOs. Ridden by Kathy O'Hara for Scone trainer Paul Messara, Alverta was only a short-head in front of sophomore geldings Five Ways (Red Ransom-Missa Brevis, by Miswaki) & Eight Moons (Octagonal-Simoon, by Palace Music), another half-length further adrift in 3rd. Passed in for $20,000 at the 2005 Inglis Easter Sale where she was consigned by Arrowfield Stud, Alverta's 4 wins from 7 starts took her earnings to $109,400.
