Run For Levi Wins Phoenix Slipper

Monday, 31st May 2010

Arrowfield Stud stallion Hussonet (Mr Prospector-Sacahuista, by Raja Baba) added a juvenile black-type success when Patinack Farm colt Run For Levi (Hussonet-Madam Bligh, by Nine Carat) gained the decision in a 3-way photo-finish to the $100,000 Listed Phoenix Slipper (1350m) for 2YOs at Doomben. Run For Levi (ridden by Nash Rawiller for trainer John Thompson) scored by a short-halfhead from fellow colt Big Chance (Octagonal-Invited, by Iglesia) with a further long-head to favoured filly Ringa Ringa Rosie (Bradbury's Luck-La Guichet, by Al Hareb). Run For Levi (purchased as a foal-at-foot when his dam Madam Blight was consigned by Vinery Stud & sold for $340,000 at the 2008 Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale) now has 2 wins & a placing from 6 starts for $73,950 earnings.
