All Silent Wins Gr1 Patinack Farm Classic

Monday, 9th November 2009

Former Widden Stud shuttler Belong To Me (Danzig-Belonging, by Exclusive Native) added a Gr1 triumph when favoured 6YO gelding All Silent (Belong To Me-Lisheenowen, by Semipalatinsk) notched his 2nd successive group win since returning from a 19-weeks spell by rocketing from last-to-first in the final 200m to snatch a 0.75-length victory in the $500,000 weight-for-age Gr1 Patinack Farm Classic (1200m) at Flemington. All Silent (ridden by Nicholas Hall for trainer Grahame Begg) defeated 3YO colt Wanted (Fastnet Rock-Fragmentation, by Snippets) & 5YO gelding Bank Robber (Dash For Cash-Saliah, by Salieri). All Silent (passed-in as a yearling for $280,000 at the 2005 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) now has 8 wins (also including last start’s Gr2 Gilgai Stakes over 1200m at Flemington & March's Gr2 Canterbury Stakes over 1300m at Rosehill, plus 2008's Gr1 Emirates Stakes over 1600m at Flemington, Gr3 AAMI International Travel Insurance Stakes over 1400m at Flemington & Gr2 Ajax Stakes over 1500m at Rosehill) & 2 placings (including May's Gr1 Doomben 10,000 over 1350m at Doomben) from 19 starts for $1,595,825 earnings.
