Cats Whisker Wins Rose Of Kingston Stakes

Tuesday, 6th October 2009

Former Coolmore shuttler & Gr1 Kentucky Derby winner Fusaichi Pegasus (Mr Prospector-Angel Fever, by Danzig) added a group success when 4YO mare Cats Whisker (Fusaichi Pegasus-Perfect Halo, by Don't Say Halo) made it 3 stakes victories & a stakes runner-up from 4 starts in less than 2 months since returning from a 16-weeks spell with a 0.75-length victory in the $200,000 Gr2 Rose Of Kingston Stakes (1400m) for mares 4YO & up at Flemington. Cats Whisker (ridden by Hugh Bowman for trainer Mark Kavanagh) defeated fellow 4YO mare Gold Water (Choisir-Float, by Devil's Bag) & 6YO mare Dane Julia (Caesour-Precious Julia, by Danehill). Cats Whisker (a $250,000 yearling consigned by Coolmore at the 2007 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) now has 6 wins (also including September's Gr2 Let's Elope Stakes over 1400m at Flemington & August's Gr3 Cockram Stakes over 1200m at Caulfield) & 4 placings (including last start's Gr2 Stocks Stakes over 1600m at Moonee Valley on September 12, plus 2008's Gr1 Thousand Guineas over 1600m at Caulfield & Gr2 Edward Manifold Stakes over 1610m at Flemington) from 13 starts for $599,300 earnings.
