Gallica Wins Edward Manifold Stakes
Arrowfield stallion Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a Group race when lightly raced filly Gallica (Redoute's Choice-Swing Queen, by Kingmambo) went for home at the top of the straight and never looked in doubt to land the $300,000 Gr2 Edward Manifold Stakes (1610m) for 3YO fillies at Flemington. Ridden by Damien Oliver for trainer Mick Price, Gallica won from fellow fillies Cats Whisker (Fusaichi Pegasus-Perfect Halo, by Don't Say Halo) & Sparks Fly (Flying Spur-Dual Spark, by Spartacus). A $250,000 yearling consigned by Amarina Farm at the 2007 Magic Millions Premier Sale on the Gold Coast, Gallica has 3 wins & 2 placings from 6 starts for $216,530 earnings.
