1st Win For Alinghi $2.6m Full-Sister Perfect Persuasion
On the track yesterday, multiple Gr1-winner Alinghi's 3YO full-sister Perfect Persuasion (Encosta de Lago-Oceanfast, by Monde Bleu) returned from a 6-months spell to notch her 1st victory with a 6-lengths blitz of her older rivals over 1200m at Kyneton in Victoria for trainer Lee Freedman. Perfect Persuasion (a $2.6 million yearling at the 2006 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) had previously finished 3rd in the Listed Talindert Stakes (1000m) at Moonee Valley in February & 4th in the Gr3 Breeders' Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville in March. Overall she now has a win & a stakes-placing from 4 starts for $19,850 earnings.
