Tagus Wins City Of Adelaide Handicap

Monday, 12th April 2010

Coolmore-based stallion & Australian Champion Sire of the last 2 seasons Encosta de Lago (Fairy King-Shoal Creek, by Star Way) added a black-type quinella (& 66th individual stakes-winner) when top-weighted 5YO gelding Tagus (Encosta De Lago-Lady Capel, by Last Tycoon) scored a 2.75-lengths victory in the $75,000 Listed City Of Adelaide Handicap (1550m) at Morphettville. Tagus (ridden by Peter Mertens for trainer John Thompson) defeated 4YO mare Eau De Joie (Encosta De Lago-Patou, by Covetous) & favoured 3YO filly I'm Discreet (Elusive Quality-She's Discreet, by Euclase). Tagus (a $250,000 yearling at the 2006 Magic Millions Premier Sale on the Gold Coast) now has 8 wins & 3 placings from 29 starts for $281,080 earnings.
