Grand Journey Wins Natasha Stakes

Monday, 17th March 2008

Gr1-winning stallion Good Journey (Nureyev-Chimes Of Freedom, by Private Account) added a black-type success when favoured daughter Grand Journey (Good Journey-Grand Prospect, by Flying Spur) scored a 4.5-lengths victory in the $75,000 Listed Natasha Stakes (2200m) for 3YO fillies at Ascot in Perth. Grand Journey (ridden by William Pike for trainer David Brideoake) defeated My Becks (Second Empire-My Zapherine, by Laranto) & Snookie The Bookie (Tobougg-Sammee M, by Carr De Naskra). Grand Journey (a $6,500 yearling at the 2006 Inglis Autumn Sale in Melbourne) now has 3 wins & 5 placings from 15 starts for $140,550 earnings. Meanwhile winning sire Good Journey was used almost exclusively by Written Bloodstock (covering 27 mares in 2003, 44 in 2004, 47 in 2005 & 22 in 2006) before being exported to the US & currently standing at Magali Farms in California.
