Sunburnt Land Wins Thai Airways Sprint

Monday, 20th October 2008

Ill-fated former Durham Lodge stallion Scenic (Sadler's Wells-Idyllic, by Foolish Pleasure) added a group success when favoured 5YO gelding Sunburnt Land (Scenic-Razor Blade, by Blazing Sword) scored a half-length victory in the $200,000 Gr2 Thai Airways International Sprint (1100m) at Caulfield. Sunburnt Land (ridden by Chris Symons for trainer Mathew Ellerton) defeated 3YO gelding Aichi (Strategic-Nagoya, by Quest For Fame) & 6YO gelding Biscayne Bay (Stravinsky-Mont Tremblant, by St Jovite). Sunburnt Land took his record to 8 wins (also including May's Listed Straight Six over 1200m at Flemington) & 2 placings from 16 starts for $302,500 earnings.
