Captain Rio Adds UK Black-Type

Monday, 4th April 2011

In the UK, NZ Westbury Stud shuttler Captain Rio (Pivotal-Beloved Visitor, by Miswaki) added a black-type success when front-running 4YO mare Agony And Ecstasy (Captain Rio-Agony Aunt, by Formidable) returned from a 5-months spell to score by a head in the £30,000 (A$47,000) Listed Snowdrop Fillies' Stakes (8 furlongs on all-weather) for mares 4YO & up at Kempton Park. Agony And Ecstasy (ridden by Richard Kingscote for trainer Ralph Beckett) defeated Irish-bred 5YO mare Night Lily (Night Shift-Kedross, by King Of Kings) & Irish-bred 4YO mare Maid In Heaven (Clodovil-Serious Delight, by Lomond). Agony And Ecstasy took her record to 4 wins & 3 placings (including 2010's French Listed Prix Ceres over 1400m at Saint Cloud) from 12 starts for £38,906 (A$60,300) earnings.
