Widden Stud's Gr1 Golden Slipper-winning stallion Stratum (Redoute's Choice-Bourgeois, by Luskin Star) added a juvenile black-type success (& 5th individual stakes-winner) when his colt Estrato (Stratum-Lung Tah, by Quest For Fame) scored a half-length victory in the NZ$45,000 Listed Wentwood Grange Stakes (1100m) for 2YOs at Te Rapa. Estrato (ridden by Samantha Spratt for trainer Peter McKay) defeated the fillies Lady Chapel (King's Chapel-Akela, by Al Akbar) & Australian-bred Anabandana (Anabaa-Great Notice, by Nureyev). Estrato (a $95,000 yearling at this year's Magic Millions January Sale) now has 2 wins & a placing from 4 starts for NZ$37,525 earnings.
