In Singapore yesterday, 4YO Japanese-bred mare Jolie's Shinju (Jolie's Halo-Endearing Quality, by Danzig) scored a front-running 5-lengths victory over her male rivals in the S$1,000,000 (A$878,000) Gr1 Emirates Singapore Derby (2000m) for 4YOs at Kranji. Jolie's Shinju (ridden by Australian jockey Ronnie Stewart for trainer Hideyuki Takaoka) defeated 4YO geldings Big Maverick (O'Reilly-Ajfan, by Woodman) & Marco Kid (Keltrice-Tristram Power, by Sir Tristram). Jolie's Shinju took her record to 9 wins & 6 placings (including March's Gr3 Kranji Sprint over 1200m) from 19 starts for S$1,324,553 (A$1,162,500) earnings.
