Dariana Wins Frank Packer Plate

Tuesday, 27th April 2010

Flagship Arrowfield Stud stallion & former Australian Champion Sire Redoute’s Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a group success when daughter Dariana (Redoute's Choice-Beldarian, by Last Tycoon) scored a half-length victory over her male rivals in the $125,000 Gr3 Frank Packer Plate (2000m) for 3YOs at Randwick.  Dariana (ridden by Michael Rodd for trainer Bart Cummings) defeated the gelding Euphemism (Lonhro-Clonakilty, by Stravinsky) & colt Viking Hero (Elvstroem-Gypsy Dollar, by Zabeel). Dariana (a $300,000 yearling at the 2008 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) now has 2 wins & a runner-up from 6 starts for $108,665 earnings.
