Juste Momente Wins Gr1 Robert Sangster Stakes

Monday, 31st March 2008

Former Coolmore shuttler Giant's Causeway (Storm Cat-Mariah's Storm, by Rahy) added a Gr1 triumph when 4YO mare Juste Momente (Giant's Causeway-Skates, by Danehill) rattled home from the tail of the field to gain the judge's verdict in a 3-way photo-finish to the $300,000 weight-for-age Gr1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) for fillies & mares at Morphettville in Adelaide. Juste Momente (ridden by Steven Arnold for trainer Dan O'Brien) scored by a neck from 5YO mare Zipanese (Bellotto-Eastern Charm, by King's High) with a further long-head to 3YO filly Serious Speed (Royal Academy-Twitter, by Kendor); hot favourite & Australia's champion sprinting mare Miss Andretti finished 4th. Juste Momente (a $300,000 yearling at the 2005 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) now has 6 wins (also including November's Listed Liberty Financial Stakes over 1400m at Flemington) & 4 placings (including 2007's Gr3 Hocking Stuart South Yarra Stakes over 1200m at Caulfield, Gr3 Cockram Stakes over 1200m at Caulfield & Listed Dunlop Stakes over 1600m at Morphettville) from 19 starts for $540,125 earnings.
