Dr Zic Wins US Gr1 Vinery Madison Stakes
Front-running 4YO mare Dr Zic (Milwaukee Brew-Royal Corona, by Holy Bull) scoered a 2.5-lengths victory in the US$300,000 Gr1 Vinery Madison Stakes (7 furlongs on all-weather) for mares 4YO & up at Keeneland. Dr Zic (ridden by Kent Desormeaux for trainer Joan Scott) defeated 5YO mares Dubai Majesty (Essence Of Dubai-Great Majesty, by Great Above) & favourite Informed Decision (Monarchos-Palangana, by His Majesty) who won this race last year. Dr Zic (a US$40,000 2YO at the 2008 Ocala Breeders' June Sale) took her record to 5 wins (also including 2008's Listed Sandpiper Stakes over 6 furlongs at Tampa Bay Downs) & a placing (in 2009's Gr2 Forward Gal Stakes over 7 furlongs at Gulfstream Park) from 9 starts for US$288,620 earnings.
