Riosand Wins Perth Stakes

Tuesday, 6th April 2010

Former Coolmore shuttler & Gr1 Kentucky Derby winner Fusaichi Pegasus (Mr Prospector-Angel Fever, by Danzig) added a juvenile black-type success (& 47th individual stakes-winner world-wide) when favoured gelding Riosand (Fusaichi Pegasus-Lackadaisical, by Star Pyramul) maintained his unbeaten record with victory by a long-neck in the $75,000 Listed Perth Stakes (1100m) for 2YO colts & geldings at Ascot. Riosand (ridden by Troy Turner for trainer Joe Byrne) defeated debutant colt Big Josh (Blackfriars-Market Wrap, by Pricelessly) & fellow gelding The Pupster (Bel Esprit-Moving Shadows, by New Regent). Riosand (a $100,000 yearling at the 2009 Magic Millions Premier Sale on the Gold Coast) now has 2 wins from 2 starts for $61,950 earnings.
