Lion Cavern Adds US Black-Type

Monday, 27th July 2009

Ill-fated former Lynden Park shuttle stallion Lion Cavern (Mr Prospector-Secrettame, by Secretariat) added a US black-type success when 5YO mare Final Refrain (Lion Cavern-Tidy Tune, by The Minstrel) scored a 2.25-lengths victory in the US$85,000 Listed Ellis Park Turf Stakes (8.5 furlongs on grass) for fillies & mares at Ellis Park in Kentucky. Final Refrain (ridden by Victor Lebron for trainer Albert Stall) defeated 4YO mare Whirlie Bertie (Stormin Fever-De Bertie, by De Niro) & 3YO filly Kiss Mine (Mineshaft-Kiss The Devil, by Kris S). Final Refrain (passed-in for US$10,000 at the 2005 Keeneland January Yearling Sale) took her record to 4 wins & 11 placings (including both 2008's Listed Blushing KD Handicap over 8.5 furlongs at Fair Grounds & Listed Old red Stakes over 8 furlongs at Saratoga) from 24 starts for US$243,607 earnings.
