Singspiel Adds Swedish Black-Type
Also in Europe, former Darley shuttler & Gr1 Dubai World Cup winner Singspiel (In The Wings-Glorious Song, by Halo) added a black-type success when French-bred 4YO entire Luca Brasi (Singspiel-Diamond Field, by Mr Prospector) notched his 2nd stakes victory in a fortnight with a 5-lengths blitz of his rivals in Sweden's Listed Songline Classic (2000m) for 4YOs & up at Taby. Luca Brasi (ridden by Rafael Schistl for trainer F.Castro) defeated Argentine-bred 5YO gelding Snow Runner (Lode-Snow Pac, by Snow Satyr) & Irish-bred 5YO gelding & the winner's stable-mate Highway (King's Theatre-Havinia, by Habitat). At his previous start, Luca Brasi similarly blitzed his rivals by 8-lengths in last month's Swedish Listed Skanska Faltrittklubbens Jubileumslopning (2400m) at Jagersro to win that race for the 2nd successive year. Last season Luca Brasi also finished 2nd in Sweden's Listed Volvo Svenskt Derby (2400m) at Jagersro; overall he now has 4 wins & a runner-up from 9 starts for £121,215 (A$254,000) earnings.
