News Alert Wins City Tatts Lightning Handicap

Monday, 19th October 2009

Coolmore shuttler Danehill Dancer (Danehill-Mira Adonde, by Sharpen Up) added a black-type success when 5YO gelding News Alert (Danehill Dancer-Breaking News, by Brief Truce) returned from a 13-weeks spell to gain the judge's verdict in a 3-way photo-finish to the $100,000 Listed City Tattersalls Lightning Handicap (1100m) at Randwick. News Alert (ridden by Darren Gauci for trainer Con Karakatsanis) scored by a neck from fellow 5YO gelding Black Prince (Commands-Munum Miss, by Spritely Knight) with a further neck to 7YO gelding Wasted Emotions (Desert Prince-Emotional Moment, by Salieri). News Alert now has 6 wins (also including June's Gr3 Healy Stakes over 1200m at Eagle Farm & May's Listed Chief De Beers Quality Handicap over 1110m at Doomben) & 10 placings (including June's Listed QTC Lightning Handicap over 1000m at Eagle Farm & 2008's Listed Yalumba Cup over 1300m at Hawkesbury) from 20 starts for $364,650 earnings.
