Gr3-winning & triple Gr2-placed Kitchwin Hills stallion Dane Shadow (Danehill-Slight Chance, by Centaine) added a group success (& 3rd individual stakes-winner, following his 2nd via Red Tracer at Canterbury Park the previous evening: reported below) when 4YO mare Hurtle Myrtle (Dane Shadow-Ravenswood, by Woodman) scored a 1-length victory in the $175,000 Gr2 Sapphire Stakes (1200m) for fillies & mares at Randwick. Hurtle Myrtle (ridden by Damien Oliver for trainer Matthew Smith) defeated 5YO mare Kimillsy (Danehill Dancer-Lady Fidelia, by Snippets) & fellow 4YO mare Marquardt (Shamardal-Centrefold Angel, by Centaine). Hurtle Myrtle (a $55,000 yearling consigned by Kitchwin Hills at the 2008 Inglis Classic Sale in Sydney) now has 2 wins & 5 placings (in 2010's Gr2 Surround Stakes over 1400m at Warwick Farm, plus 2009's Gr1 Arrowfield Stud Flight Stakes over 1600m at Randwick, Gr2 Furious Stakes over 1400m at Randwick, Gr3 Silver Shadow Stakes over 1200m at Randwick & Inglis Classic (1200m) for 2YOs at Randwick.) from 13 starts for $276,575 earnings.
