Falbrav Adds US Gr3

Monday, 26th October 2009

Also in the US, former Arrowfield Stud shuttler & 8-time Gr1-winning sire Falbrav (Fairy King-Gift Of The Night, by Slewpy) added a graded-stakes success when UK-bred daughter April Pride (Falbrav-Hasta, by Theatrical) scored a 1.5-lengths victory in the US$100,000 Gr3 Harold Ramser Handicap (8 furlongs on turf) for 3YO fillies at Santa Anita Park in California. April Pride (ridden by Garrett Gomez for trainer James Cassidy) defeated Century Park (General Meeting-Ecclesiastes, by Saint Ballado) & Irish-bred Starlarks (Mujahid-Violet, by Mukaddamah). April Pride was a €25,000 (A$40,000) 2YO at Ireland's 2008 Goffs March Sale. Previously this year, April Pride also won March's Listed China Doll Stakes (8 furlongs) at Santa Anita & overall now has 3 wins & 7 placings (including 2008's UK Gr3 Prestige Stakes over 7 furlongs at Goodwood & UK Listed Dragon Stakes over 5 furlongs at Sandown Park, plus the US Listed Blue Norther Stakes over 8 furlongs at Santa Anita) from 14 starts for US$182,611 earnings.
