Henny Hughes Adds US Black-Type
Dual US Gr1-winning Darley shuttler Henny Hughes (Hennessy-Meadow Flyer, by Meadowlake) added a US black-type success when favoured daughter Midnight Visit (Henny Hughes-Open Window, by Trempolino) scored a half-length victory in the US$60,000 Listed Love Is Eternal Stakes (6 furlongs) for 3YO fillies at Aqueduct in New York. Midnight Visit (ridden by Michael Luzzi for trainer Todd Pletcher) defeated Those Lion Eyes (Lion Heart-First Impression, by Mr Greeley) & Jackie Mo (Giacomo-Dee's Justice, by Lit de Justice). Midnight Visit (a US$160,000 yearling at the 2009 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July Sale & subsequently a US$275,000 2YO at the 2010 Fasig-Tipton February Sale) took her record to 3 wins & a placing (in March’s Listed Proud Puppy Handicap over 8 furlongs at Aqueduct) from 4 starts for US$90,000 earnings.
