Chartreux Wins Gr1 WATC Derby

Tuesday, 27th April 2010

Ill-fated Gr1 Golden Slipper-winning Yarraman Park sire Catbird (Danehill-Fitting, by Marscay) added a Gr1 triumph (& 19th individual stakes-winner) when gelded son Chartreux (Catbird-French Resort, by Bonhomie) scored a 0.75-length victory in the $500,000 Gr1 WATC Derby (2400m) for 3YOs at Ascot in Perth. Chartreux (ridden by Brad Rawiller for trainer David Hayes) defeated the colt Bridgestone (Pentire-Golden Dawn, by Gold Brose) & favoured fellow gelding Brother Mark (Zabeel-Enhancer, by Red Tempo). Chartreux (a $62,000 weanling at the 2007 Magic Millions National Sale & later a $70,000 yearling consigned by Toreby Park at the 2008 Magic Millions Perth Premier Sale) now has 4 wins & 4 placings from 12 starts for $468,692 earnings.
