Renaissance Wins Sapphire Stakes

Monday, 12th April 2010

Former Woodlands & now Darley Stud's 11-time Gr1-winning World Champion Miler & Australian Racehorse-Of-The-Year Lonhro (Octagonal-Shadea, by Straight Strike) added a group quinella (& 13th individual stakes-winner) when Sheikh Mohammed's 4YO mare Renaissance (Lonhro-Seances, by Canny Lad) scored by a nose in the $150,000 Gr2 Sapphire Stakes (1200m) for fillies & mares at Randwick. Renaissance (ridden by Josh Parr for trainer Peter Snowden) defeated fellow 4YO mare & favoured stable-mare Beaded (Lonhro-Subtle, by Night Shift) & another 4YO mare Jersey Lily (Catbird-Smytzer's Roylani, by Royal Academy). Renaissance now has 6 wins & 2 runners-up from 13 starts for $214,630 earnings. (Click on the link for full race details from Group Race Results at AAP Racing.)
