Ilovethiscity Wins Hobartville Stakes

Monday, 28th February 2011

Yarraman Park sire Magic Albert (Zeditave-Sally Lou, by Salieri) added a group success when favoured colt Ilovethiscity (Magic Albert-Kensington Rose, by Kenfair) scored a 1.25-lengths victory & set a race record in the $200,000 Gr2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) for 3YOs at Rosehill. Ilovethiscity (ridden by Brenton Avdulla for trainer Grahame Begg) clocked 1min 22.52sec in defeating fellow colts Retrieve (Rahy-Hold To Ransom, by Red Ransom) & Skilled (Commands-Dextrousm, by Quest For Fame). Ilovethiscity (a $40,000 yearling consigned by Fairview Park Stud at the 2009 Inglis Classic Sale in Sydney) now has 3 wins (also including 2010's Gr3 Spring Stakes over 1600m at Broadmeadow) & 3 placings (including 2010's Gr1 Golden Rose over 1400m at Rosehill & Inglis Classic over 1200m at Rosehill) from 10 starts for $443,000 earnings.
