The Chunkster Wins Oakbank Stakes

Tuesday, 25th March 2008

Kambula Stud's Gr1 Victoria Derby-winning sire Blevic (Scenic-Blooms, by Biscay) added a black-type success when 4YO mare The Chunkster (Blevic-Racer's Belle, by Racer's Edge) returned from a 3-months spell to notch her 3rd consecutive victory with a 1.5-lengths win in the $65,000 Listed Oakbank Stakes (1100m) at Oakbank in South Australia. The Chunkster (ridden by Dwayne Dunn for trainer David Jolly) defeated 4YO gelding Letmeentertainyou (Catbird-News Academy, by Royal Academy) & favoured 5YO mare Zipanese (Bellotto-Eastern Charm, by King's High). The Chunkster (passed-in for $24,000 as a yearling at the 2005 Magic Millions Adelaide Sale) now has 7 wins & a runner-up from 10 starts for $148,580 earnings.
