Rothesay Wins Lord Mayor's Cup

Monday, 24th May 2010

Multiple Gr1-winning Australian-bred Coolmore stallion Fastnet Rock (Danehill-Piccadilly Circus, by Royal Academy) added a group success when favoured 3YO colt Rothesay (Fastnet Rock-Schiaparelli, by Woodman) scored a 2.25-lengths victory over his older rivals in the $100,000 weight-for-age Gr3 Lord Mayor's Cup (1615m) at Doomben. Rothesay (ridden by Blake Shinn for trainer Gerald Ryan) defeated 6YO gelding Our Lukas (Generous-Parfore, by Gold Brose) & 7YO gelding Hadaaf (Danewin-Belle Desire, by Kenmare). Rothesay (passed-in for $140,000 as a yearling at the 2008 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) now has 3 wins & 2 placings (including April's Listed Gosford Guineas over 1200m) from 6 starts for $222,650 earnings.
