Aust-Bred Rock Of Gibraltar Son Wins In Japan
In Japan, Australian-bred 3YO colt Setono Antaeus (Rock Of Gibraltar-Miss Chanel, by Splendent) scored a front-running victory against older rivals over 1200m at Nakayama. Setono Antaeus (a half-brother to Gr2-winning mare Miss Fantabulous) was a $120,000 yearling consigned by Lomar Park Stud at the 2007 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale & has already earned owner Sumiko Namba over ¥25.5 million (A$350,000): he has missed a cheque just once in his 9 starts to date. Meanwhile Setono Antaeus's yearling half-sister (by Coolmore's current Australian champion sire Encosta de Lago) is catalogued for next January's Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale.
