Returntosender Wins Queen Of The South Stakes

Monday, 19th April 2010

Gr1-winning NZ Haunui Farm shuttler & 2002 French Champion 2YO Elusive City (Elusive Quality-Star Of Paris, by Dayjur) added a group success (& 7th individual stakes-winner world-wide) when 4YO mare Returntosender (Elusive City-Disco Girl, by Marauding) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the $150,000 Gr2 Queen Of The South Stakes (1600m) for fillies & mares at Morphettville in Adelaide. Returntosender (ridden by Mark Zahra for trainer Peter Moody) scored by a head from fellow 4YO mare Marchelle Belle (Anabaa-Life Goes On Oh, by Night Shift) with a further neck to 6YO mare Amberino (Perugino-Amber Plate, by Rustic Amber). Returntosender (a $40,000 yearling at the 2007 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) took her record to 4 wins & 5 placings (including 2009's Listed Princess Stakes over 1600m at Eagle Farm) from 14 starts for $213,638 earnings.
