Rabbuka Wins Festival Stakes

Monday, 7th December 2009

Former Coolmore shuttler Giant’s Causeway (Storm Cat-Mariah's Storm, by Rahy) added a black-type success when equal top-weighted 6YO gelding Rabbuka (Giant's Causeway-Explosive, by Fappiano) returned from a 27-weeks spell to score a 1.25-lengths victory in the $100,000 Listed Festival Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill Gardens in Sydney. Rabbuka (ridden by Josh Parr for trainer Gai Waterhouse) defeated 7YO gelding Parfumier (Belong To Me-Patou, by Covetous) & 4YO entire Ahdashim (Elusive City-Clinique, by Dance Floor). Rabbuka now has 7 wins & 5 placings (including May’s Gr3 Doomben Handicap over 2020m & April’s Listed Peter Gallagher Stakes over 2144m) at Eagle Farm) from 18 starts for $318,900 earnings.
