In Japan, multiple Gr1-winning former NZ Java Lodge & Independent Stallions Victoria shuttler Zenno Rob Roy (Sunday Silence-Roamin Rachel, by Mining) added a group quinella when daughter Saint Emilion (Zenno Rob Roy-Moteck, by Last Tycoon) scored a 1-length victory in the ¥100.68m (A$1.158m) Gr2 Sho Flora Stakes (2000m) for 3YO fillies at Tokyo. Saint Emilion (ridden by Norihiro Yokoyama for trainer Masaaki Koga) defeated Agnes Waltz (Zenno Rob Roy-Merlot Sweet, by Hector Protector) & Blooming Alley (Symboli Kris S-Princess Olivia, by Lycius). Saint Emilion took her record to 3 wins & a placing (in March’s Gr3 Hai Flower Cup over 1800m at Nakayama) from 4 starts.
