Monday, 4th April 2011

NZ Rich Hill Stud's multiple European Gr1-winning stallion Pentire (Be My Guest-Gull Nook, by Mill Reef) added a Gr1 triumph when 6YO gelding Rangirangdoo (Pentire-She Wishes, by Kenfair) gained the judge's decision in a 3-way photo-finish to the $400,000 weight-for-age Gr1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill. Rangirangdoo (ridden by Corey Brown for trainer Chris Waller) scored by a half-head from 4YO entire Love Conquers All (Mossman-She's A Meanie, by Prince Salieri) with a further half-neck to 4YO gelding Triple Elegance (Mossman-Mary Machree, by Quest For Fame). Rangirangdoo (a NZ$170,000 yearling at the 2006 NZB Premier Sale at Karaka) now has 10 wins (also including 2010's Gr1 Doncaster Mile over 1600m at Randwick & Gr2 Expressway Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill, plus 2009's Gr2 Patinack Farm Crystal Mile over 1600m at Moonee Valley & Gr3 Tramway Handicap over 1300m at Randwick) & 9 placings (including 2010's Gr1 Ranvet Stakes over 2000m at Rosehill, Gr1 Patinack Farm Chipping Norton Stakes over 1600m at Warwick Farm & Gr2 Apollo Stakes over 1400m at Rosehill, as well as 2009's Gr1 Arrrowfield Stud Epsom Handicap over 1600m at Randwick & Gr2 Shannon Stakes over 1500m at Rosehill) from 21 starts for $2,004,390 earnings.
