Sassbee Wins Penny Edition Stakes
Kambula Stud stallion Blevic (Scenic-Blooms, by Biscay) added a black-type success when 7YO gelding Sassbee (Blevic-Aneret Gold, by Marquee Star) finished strongly to grab victory by a long-neck in the $50,000 weight-for-age Listed Penny Edition Stakes (1500m) at Morphettville in Adelaide. Sassbee (ridden by Matthew Neilson for trainer David Jolly) defeated 6YO mare Secret Daughter (Swamp King-Favoured Affair, by Favoured Bay) & 3YO filly Truly Beautiful (Beautiful Crown-Zabstar, by Zabeel). Sassbee (a $3,600 yearling at the 2002 Magic Millions Adelaide Cup Thoroughbred Sale) now has 8 wins (also including 2006's Listed Sir John Monash Stakes over 1100m at Caulfield) & 4 placings (including 2006's Gr1 Manikato Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley, Gr1 Goodwood Handicap over 1200m at Morphettville, Gr3 McEwen Stakes over 1000m at Moonee Valley & Listed Railway Stakes over 1100m at Oakbank) from 22 starts for $371,470 earnings.
