Illuminates Wins Angst Stakes

Tuesday, 6th October 2009

Former Woodlands Stud & now Darley stallion Strategic (Zeditave-Sudden Impulse, by Luskin Star) added a black-type success when 5YO mare Illuminates (Strategic-Dazzle Light, by Danzero) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the $100,000 Listed Angst Stakes (1400m) for mares 4YO & up at Randwick. Illuminates (ridden by Peter Wells for trainer Graeme Rogerson) scored by a long-neck from Patronyme (More Than Ready-Descendant, by Zeditave) with a further neck to Love And Kisses (Encosta De Lago-Fair Embrace, by Strategic). Illuminates (a $86,000 yearling consigned by Baramul Stud at the 2006 Magic Millions Winter Sale on the Gold Coast) now has 8 wins (also including March's Listed Aspiration Quality Handicap over 1600m at Randwick) & 13 placings (including last start's Listed Patinack Farm Tibbie Stakes over 1400m at Newcastle on September 17, plus 2008's Gr3 Research Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill & Listed The Bacardi Nivison over 1200m at Randwick, as well as 2007's Listed Widden Stakes over 1100m at Randwick) from 43 starts for $635,550 earnings.
