Monday, 10th May 2010

Baerami Thoroughbreds Gr1-winning sire Danasinga (Danehill-Princess Tracy, by Ahonoora) added a group success when 4YO gelding Metal Bender (Danasinga-Jacqwin, by Bluebird) scored a 1.25-lengths victory in the $300,000 weight-for-age Gr2 A.D.Hollindale Stakes (1800m) at the Gold Coast in Queensland. Metal Bender (ridden by Hugh Bowman for trainer Chris Waller) defeated favoured 5YO entire Road To Rock (Encosta De Lago-Trewornan, by Midyan) & 4YO mare Gold Water (Choisir-Float, by Devil's Bag). Metal Bender (a $160,000 yearling consigned by Waikato Stud at the 2007 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) now has 6 wins (also including 2009's Gr1 Randwick Guineas over 1600m & Gr1 Rosehill Guineas over 2000m) & 2 runners-up (including 2009's Gr1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes over 2000m at Randwick) from 12 starts for $1,039,950 earnings.
