4th US 1st-Crop Winner For Shuttler Southern Image
In the US, triple Gr1-winning Widden Stud shuttler Southern Image (Halo's Image-Pleasant Dixie, by Dixieland Band) recorded his 4th 1st-crop winner when 2YO filly Shakitsugaree (Southern Image-Empty Portrait, by Coronado's Quest) scored on debut over 4.5 furlongs at Prairie Meadows in Iowa for trainer Kory Owens. Shakitsugaree was a US$ $42,000 yearling at the 2008 Keeneland September Sale. Her sire Southern Image (whose initial southern hemisphere 2YOs appear on the track after August 1) will stand the 2009 breeding season at Widden in the NSW Hunter Valley for $9,900.
