Here De Angels Wins McEwen Stakes
Former Arrowfield Stud & now Coolmore shuttler Dehere (Deputy Minister-Sister Dot, by Secretariat) added a group success when undefeated 4YO gelding Here De Angels (Dehere-Angelic Belle, by Kenmare) returned from a 19-weeks spell to maintain his boom with a 0.75-lengths victory in the $150,000 weight-for-age Gr3 Ian McEwen Stakes (1000m) at Caulfield. Here De Angels (ridden by Corey Brown for trainer Lee Freedman) defeated Gr1-winning favoured 4YO mare Gold Edition (Lion Hunter-Glimmers, by Success Express) & 5YO gelding Dr Nipandtuck (Dr Fong-Clippings, by Snippets). Here De Angels (a $90,000 yearling at the 2005 Magic Millions Premier Sale on the Gold Coast) now boasts 6 successive victories (also including last start's Gr3 McKay Stakes over 1100m at Morphettville on April 21) for $223,000 earnings.
