Mull Of Kintyre Adds Irish Black-Type
Also in Ireland overnight, former Coolmore shuttler Mull Of Kintyre (Danzig-Retrospective, by Easy Goer) added a black-type success (& 12th individual stakes-winner) when front-running 6YO mare Miss Gorica (Mull Of Kintyre-Allegorica, by Alzao) scored by a head in the €42,500 (A$62,000) Listed Sprint Stakes (5 furlongs) at Naas to improve on her runner-up in this same race last year. Miss Gorica (ridden by Wayne Lordan for trainer Joanna Morgan) defeated fast-finishing 4YO gelding Rain Delayed (Oasis Dream-Forever Phoenix, by Shareef Dancer) & UK-bred 7YO entire Luisant (Pivotal-La Legere, by Lit De Justice). Miss Gorica took her record to 7 wins & 14 placings (including April's Listed Cork Stakes over 6 furlongs & 2009's Listed Sprint Stakes over 5 furlongs at Naas) from 46 starts. Mull Of Kintyre (who sired dual Gr1-winner Araafa from his 1st-crop) now stands at Capricorn Stud in India, following stints at Coolmore in Ireland & Ashford Stud in Kentucky.
