Lovemelikearock Wins Spring Stakes

Thursday, 17th September 2009

In Australia, Gr1-winning Coolmore stallion Fastnet Rock (Danehill-Piccadilly Circus, by Royal Academy) added a group success when daughter Lovemelikearock (Fastnet Rock-Love All, by Mt Livermore) prevailed over her male rivals in a 3-way photo-finish to yesterday's $175,000 Gr3 Spring Stakes (1600m) for 3YOs at Broadmeadow in Newcastle. Lovemelikearock (ridden by Glyn Schofield for trainer Anthony Cummings) scored by a long-neck from the colt Viking Legend (Elvstroem-Innocent Baby, by Jugah) with a further long-neck to the gelding Euphemism (Lonhro-Clonakilty, by Stravinsky). Lovemelikearock (a $110,000 yearling at the 2008 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) took her record to 2 wins & 2 placings (in last start's Gr2 Furious Stakes over 1400m at Randwick on September 5 & March's Gr3 Sweet Embrace Stakes over 1200m at Randwick) from 7 starts for $187,740 earnings.
