Verglas Adds UK Gr3

Tuesday, 27th April 2010

Former West Australian Alwyn Park Stud shuttler Verglas (Highest Honor-Rahaam, by Secreto) added a UK group success when Irish-bred 4YO entire Glass Harmonium (Verglas-Spring Symphony, by Darshaan) returned from a 6-months spell to score by a head in the £65,000 (A$108,000) Gr3 Gordon Richards Stakes (10 furlongs) for 4YOs & up at Sandown Park. Glass Harmonium (ridden by Ryan Moore for trainer Sir Michael Stoute) defeated fellow 4YO entire Redwood (High Chaparral-Arum Lily, by Woodman) & 4YO gelding Laaheb (Cape Cross-Maskunah, by Sadler's Wells). Glass Harmonium took his record to 3 wins (also including 2009’s Listed Hampton Court Stakes over 10 furlongs at Royal Ascot) & a runner-up (in 2009’s Gr3 Darley Stakes over 9 furlongs at Newmarket) from 8 starts for £88,338 (A$147,00) earnings.
