Samantha Miss Wins Gr1 Flight Stakes
Arrowfield Stud's star stallion Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) celebrated another Gr1 winner when boom sophomore filly Samantha Miss (Redoute's Choice-Millyet, by Zabeel) made a mess of her rivals in the $400,000 Gr1 Arrowfield Stud Flight Stakes for 3YO fillies at Randwick. The victory was the 1st clean sweep of the Princess Series since Angst achieved the feat in 1993. Ridden by Hugh Bowman for trainer Kris Lees, Samantha Miss powered home in front of fellow fillies Portillo (Red Ransom-Snowdrift, by Polish Precedent) & Kimillsy (Danehill Dancer-Lady Fidelia, by Snippets). A $1.5 million yearling consigned by Willow Park at the 2007 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney, Samantha Miss has 6 wins & 2 placings from 9 starts for $929,760 earnings.
