Light Fantastic Wins Gr1 Cadbury Guineas

Monday, 10th March 2008

Coolmore shuttler Danehill Dancer (Danehill-Mira Adonde, by Sharpen Up) added a Gr1 triumph when unbeaten gelded son Light Fantastic (Danehill Dancer-Leica Or Not, by Kendor) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the $750,000 Gr1 Cadbury Guineas (1600m) for 3YOs at Flemington. Favourite Light Fantastic (ridden by Craig Newitt for trainer Mick Price) held-on by a neck from fast-finishing colt Marching (Commands-Step, by Grand Lodge) with a further short-halfhead to fellow gelding Playwright (Fantastic Light-Amonistar, by Theatrical). Light Fantastic (a Wood Nook Farm home-bred) now has 4 wins (also including last start's Gr2 Perri Cutten Stakes over 1400m at Caulfield on February 23 & Listed Nissan Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley on February 16) from 4 starts in just 5 weeks for $647,500 earnings.
