Messenger Wins Belle Of The Turf Stakes

Monday, 19th October 2009

Coolmore shuttler & former star Australian sprinter Choisir (Danehill Dancer-Great Selection, by Lunchtime) added a black-type success when 4YO mare Messenger (Choisir-Angel In Disguise, by Sky Chase) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to yesterday's $100,000 Listed Belle Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) for fillies & mares at Gosford in NSW. Messenger (ridden by Tim Clark for trainer Anthony Cummings) scored by a long-head from 5YO mare Bernicia (Elusive Quality-Danelagh, by Danehill) & with a further half-neck to fellow 5YO mare Illuminates (Strategic-Dazzle Light, by Danzero). Messenger (a 300,000 yearling consigned by Edinglassie at the 2007 Inglis Easter in Sydney) now has 2 wins & 4 placings from 9 starts for $112,560 earnings.
