Singspiel Adds UK Black-Type Quinella
Also in the UK, former Darley shuttler Singspiel (In The Wings-Glorious Song, by Halo) added a black-type quinella when Lord Lloyd-Webber's home-bred 3YO filly Dar Re Mi (Singspiel-Darara, by Top Ville) scored a 0.75-lengths victory against older rivals in the £44,000 (A$92,000) Listed Aphrodite Stakes (12 furlongs) for fillies & mares at Newmarket. Favourite Dar re Mi (ridden by Richard Mullen for trainer John Gosden) defeated Godolphin's front-running Irish-bred 4YO mare Folk Opera (Singspiel-Skiphall, by Halling) & US-bred fellow 3YO filly Icon Project (Empire Maker-La Gueriere, by Lord At War). Previously this season Dar Re Mi finished 3rd in both May's UK Gr3 Musidora Strakes (10.5 furlongs) at York & then June's French Gr2 Prix de Malleret (2400m) at Saint-Cloud; overall she now has 2 wins & 3 placings from 5 starts for £48,104 (A$101,000) earnings.
