Beethog Wins Silk Stocking

Monday, 9th May 2011

Raheen Stud's stakes-winning & Gr1-placed stallion Shovhog (Danehill-Startling Lass, by Luskin Star) added a black-type success when front-running 4YO mare Beethog (Shovhog-Gypsy Ahlee, by Alquoz) scored a half-length victory in the $150,000 Listed Silk Stocking (1200m) for fillies & mares at the Gold Coast. Beethog (ridden by Joe Bowditch for trainer Les Kelly) defeated 5YO mare Casholet (Hussonet-Kashkow, by Kashani) & fellow 4YO mare Swiss Rose (Thorn Park-Finishing School, by Royal Academy). Beethog (passed-in for $8,000 as a yearling at the 2008 Magic Millions National Sale) took her record to 4 wins (also including 2010's Gr3 Gold Coast Guineas over 1200m) & 4 placings (including April's Listed Juanmo Stakes over 1200m at Eagle Farm) from 13 starts for $237,050 earnings.
