Lion Heart Adds US Black-Type

Monday, 31st May 2010

Multiple Gr1-winning former Coolmore shuttler Lion Heart (Tale Of The Cat-Satin Sunrise, by Mr Leader) added a US black-type success when 4YO mare Heart Ashley (Lion Heart-Pretty n Smart, by Beau Genius) scored a 1.25-lengths victory in the US$250,000 Listed My Juliet Stakes (6 furlongs) for fillies & mares at Philadelphia Park in Pennsylvania. Heart Ashley (ridden by Stewart Elliott for trainer Steve Asmussen) defeated fellow 4YO mares One Smokin' Lady (Smoke Glacken-Pieria, by Atticus) & Cat Moves (Tale Of The Cat-Dance Move, by Capote). Heart Ashley (a US$320,000 yearling at the 2007 Fasig-Tipton August Sale) now has 6 wins (also including 2009's Gr3 Adena Stallions Miss Preakness Stakes over 6 furlongs at Pimlico & Gr3 Cicada Stakes over 6 furlongs at Aqueduct) & 2 runners-up from 10 starts for US$395,895 earnings.
