Soviet Star Adds US Gr3

Wednesday, 5th September 2007

Former NZ Haunui Stud shuttler Soviet Star (Nureyev-Veruschka, by Venture) added a US group success when Irish-bred 4YO mare Rosinka (Soviet Star-Last Drama, by Last Tycoon) snatched victory by a neck in the US$111,000 Gr3 Glens Falls Handicap (11 furlongs on turf) for fillies & mares at Saratoga. Rosinka (ridden by Jeremy Rose for trainer Graham Motion) defeated fast-finishing French-bred Gr3-winner Mauralakana (Muhtathir-Jimkana, by Double Bed) & UK-bred Pictavia (Sinndar-Insijaam, by Secretariat). This was Rosinka's 4th successive victory: she also won July's Listed Robert Dick Memorial Breeders' Cup Handicap (11 furlongs on turf) at Delaware Park & June's Listed John Rooney Memorial Handicap (9 furlongs on turf) at Delaware Park & overall now boasts 6 wins from 11 starts for US$369,226 earnings. Rosinka is a half-sister to Gr1-winner King's Drama.
