Centennial Park Wins AAMI Business Insurance Stakes

Monday, 2nd November 2009

NZ Windsor Park Stud's Gr1-winning Australian-bred sire Thorn Park (Spinning World-Joy, by Bluebird) added a group success when 4YO gelding Centennial Park (Thorn Park-Trephina, by Last Tycoon) scored by a nose in the $250,000 Gr3 AAMI Business Insurance Stakes (1400m) at Flemington. Centennial Park (ridden by Blake Shinn for trainer David Payne) defeated front-running favoured 5YO gelding McClintock (King Cugat-She's Sweet, by Danzero) & dead-heating 6YO gelding Sniper's Bullet (Bite The Bullet-Yallah Terrace, by Yallah Prince) & 9YO gelding Royal Ida (Star Pyramul-Star Of Ida, by Paint The Stars). Centennial Park (passed-in for $140,000 at the 2007 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney) now has 6 wins (also including March's Listed Darby Munro Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill) & a runner-up from 12 starts for $404,500 earnings.
