Unbridled's Song Adds US Gr2

Monday, 3rd May 2010

Former Arrowfield Stud shuttler Unbridled's Song (Unbridled-Trolley Song, by Caro) added a US graded-stakes success when 4YO mare Unrivaled Belle (Unbridled's Song-Queenie Belle, by Bertrando) notched her 2nd successive stakes victory when she grabbed a last-stride victory over US 2009 Horse-Of-The Year Rachael Alexandra in the US$419,000 Gr2 La Troienne Stakes (8.5 furlongs) for fillies & mares at Churchill Downs. Unrivaled Belle (ridden by Kent Desormeaux for trainer Bill Mott) scored officially by a head from favoured fellow 4YO mare Rachael Alexandra (Medaglia D'Oro-Lotta Kim, by Roar) after the pair matched strides for the whole length of the straight, with Peruvinan-bred 6YO mare Morena (Privately Held-Charytin, by Summing) another 5-lengths back in 3rd-place. Overall Unrivaled Belle (a US$260,000 yearling at the 2007 Keeneland September Sale) now has 5 wins (also including last start's Gr3 Rampart Handicap over 9 furlongs at Gulfstream Park on March 20, plus 2009's Listed Real Prize Stakes over 8.5 furlongs at Belmont Park) & 2 runners-up (including 2009's Gr1 Gazelle Stakes over 9 furlongs at Aqueduct) from 8 starts for US$524,929 earnings.
