Bahamian Bounty Adds UK Black-Type
Former Eliza Park shuttler Bahamian Bounty (Cadeaux Genereux-Clarentia, by Ballad Rock) added a UK black-type success when 3YO filly Tropical Treat (Bahamian Bounty-Notjustaprettyface, by Red Ransom) scored a 0.75-length victory over her older rivals in the £40,000 (A$69,000) Listed Land O'Burns Fillies' Stakes (5 furlongs) for fillies & mares at Ayr in Scotland. Tropical Treat (ridden by Jim Crowley for trainer Ralph Beckett) defeated Irish-bred 4YO mare City Dancer (Elusive City-Calypso Dancer, by Celtic Swing) & Irish-bred 3YO filly Bewitched (Dansili-Abbatiale, by Kaldoun). Tropical Treat was a 28,000 guineas (A$50,000) weanling at the 2007 UK Tattersalls December Sale; overall she now has 2 wins & a placing (in May's Listed Kilvington Stakes over 6 furlongs at Nottingham) from 4 starts for £31,711 (A$55,000) earnings.
