All Silent Wins Gilgai Stakes

Tuesday, 6th October 2009

Former Widden Stud shuttler Belong To Me (Danzig-Belonging, by Exclusive Native) added a group success when top-weighted 6YO gelding All Silent (Belong To Me-Lisheenowen, by Semipalatinsk) returned from a 19-weeks spell to prevail in a 3-way photo-finish to the $250,000 Gr2 Gilgai Stakes (1200m) at Flemington. All Silent (ridden by Nicholas Hall for trainer Grahame Begg) scored by a nose from 4YO gelding First Command (Commands-River Serenade, by Hurricane Sky) with a further half-head to 5YO gelding Light Fantastic (Danehill Dancer-Leica Or Not, by Kendor). All Silent (passed-in as a yearling for $280,000 at the 2005 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) now has 7 wins (also including March's Gr2 Canterbury Stakes over 1300m at Rosehill, plus 2008's Gr1 Emirates Stakes over 1600m at Flemington, Gr3 AAMI International Travel Insurance Stakes over 1400m at Flemington & Gr2 Ajax Stakes over 1500m at Rosehill) & 2 placings (including May's Gr1 Doomben 10,000 over 1350m at Doomben) from 18 starts for $1,293,325 earnings.
