Yuro Wins Melvista Stakes

Tuesday, 25th March 2008

Coolmore shuttler Fusaichi Pegasus (Mr Prospector-Angel Fever, by Danzig) added a black-type success when gelded son Yuro (Fusaichi Pegasus-Hot Spice, by Old Spice) scored a 1.75-lengths victory in the $75,000 Listed Melvista Stakes (2200m) for 3YO colts & geldings at Ascot. Top-weighted favourite Yuro (ridden by Paul Harvey for trainer Bob Turrell) defeated fellow geldings Dash Incredible (Dash For Cash-Stage Shy, by Shy Rambler) & Verossi (Verglas-Virtuose, by Palace Music). Yuro (a $180,000 yearling at the 2006 Magic Millions Premier Sale on the Gold Coast) now has 3 wins (also including 2007's Gr3 Sir Ernest Lee-Steere Classic over 1400m at Ascot) & 1 placing (including last start's Listed J.C.Roberts Stakes over 1800m at Ascot on March 8) from 6 starts for $147,600 earnings.
