Rubiscent Wins Gr1 Underwood Stakes
On the track in Australia, Blue Gum Farm's ill-fated sire & 4-time Gr1-winning former champion racehorse Rubiton (Century-Ruby, by Seventh Hussar) added a Gr1 triumph when 5YO gelding Rubiscent (Rubiton-Skyescent, by Regal Classic) made it 4 wins from his last 5 starts with a 1.25-lengths victory in the $350,000 weight-for-age Gr1 Underwood Stakes (1800m) at Caulfield in Melbourne. Rubiscent (ridden by Dan Nikolic for trainer Mick Price) defeated multiple Gr1-winning 4YO mare Miss Finland (Redoute's Choice-Forest Pearl, by Woodman) & 5YO gelding Marasco (Scenic-Bluegrass Belle, by Is It True). Rubiscent now has 7 wins & 4 placings from 15 starts for $366,040 earnings.
