Royal Reign Wins Tails Stakes

Monday, 2nd May 2011

Triple Gr1-winning WA Oakland Park Stud-based sire Viscount (Quest For Fame-Antwerp, by Sir Tristram) added a black-type success when favoured 6YO mare Royal Reign (Viscount-Mirror The Magic, by Barathea) gained the judge's decision in a 3-way photo-finish to the $80,000 Listed Tails Stakes (2136m) at Eagle Farm. Royal Reign (ridden by Chris Munce for trainer William Pholi) scored by a short-neck from 8YO gelding Little Stranger (Dodge-Mrs Bligh, by Celestial Bounty) with a further neck to 7YO mare Winmara (Marwina-Nebula Odyssey, by Star Way). Royal Reign (NZ$37,500 yearling consigned by Windsor Park at the 2006 NZ Bloodstock Premier Sale at Karaka) took her record to 9 wins & 11 placings from 42 starts for $240,902 earnings.
