Monday, 17th March 2008

WA-based dual stakes-winning sire Zedrich (Zeditave-Rich Haul, by Haulpak) added a juvenile black-type success when favoured daughter Penny Banger (Zedrich-Miss Firecracker, by Twig Ruler) scored a 0.75-lengths victory against the males in the $100,000 Listed Schweppervescence Sprint (1000m) for 2YOs at Flemington. Aquanita Racing's unbeaten Penny Banger (ridden by Mark Zahra for trainer Robert Smerdon) defeated the colt Sidereus (General Nediym-Hootenanny, by Best Western) & fellow filly Silent But Deadly (Choisir-Silent Smytzer, by Rory's Jester). Penny Banger (a $67,500 yearling at the 2007 Magic Millions Perth Sale) now has 2 wins from 2 starts for $75,340 prize-money.
