Chinchilla Wins Queen Adelaide Stakes

Monday, 21st February 2011

Darley stallion & former Australian champion 1st-season sire Exceed And Excel (Danehill-Patrona, by Lomond) added a juvenile black-type success when favoured filly Chinchilla (Exceed And Excel-Chestnut Star, by Eternity Range) notched her 3rd successive victory when she prevailed against the males in a 3-way photo-finish to the $80,000 Listed Queen Adelaide Stakes (1050m) for 2YOs at Morphettville. Chinchilla (ridden by Chad Lever for trainer Lee Freedman) scored by a long-neck from the gelding Anythingthatmoves (Snippetson-Newbold Quest, by Quest For Fame) with a further short-halfhead to fellow filly Motifs (Fusaichi Pegasus-Melody, by Stravinsky). Chinchilla took her record to 3 wins (also including last month's Listed Elwick Stakes over 1100m at Hobart) from 5 starts for $119,675 earnings.
