Monday, 24th May 2010

Multiple Gr1-winning former Coolmore shuttler Hawk Wing (Woodman-La Lorgnette, by Val De L'Orne) added an Irish group success when front-running 4YO mare Shamwari Lodge (Hawk Wing-Ripalong, by Revoque) scored a 1.5-lengths victory in the €65,000 (A$98,000) Gr3 Equestrian Stakes (8 furlongs) for mares 4YO & up at The Curragh. Shamwari Lodge (ridden by Richard Hughes for trainer Richard Hannon) defeated 5YO mares Indiana Girl (Intikhab-Genial Jenny, by Danehill) & Annabelle's Charm (Indian Ridge-Kylemore, by Sadler's Wells). Shamwari Lodge took her record to 6 wins (also including her last 2 starts in the Listed Conqueror Stakes over 8 furlongs at Goodwood on May 1 & Listed Snowdrop Fillies' Stakes over 8 furlongs at Kempton Park on April 3) & 3 runners-up (including 2009's Listed Sceptre Stakes over 7 furlongs at Doncaster) from 13 starts for €152,288 (A$228,000) earnings.
