Lone Rock Wins Gr1 The Goodwood

Monday, 9th May 2011

Last year's Australian Champion 2nd-Season Sire & multiple Gr1-winning Australian-bred stallion Fastnet Rock (Danehill-Piccadilly Circus, by Royal Academy) added a Gr1 triumph (& 4th individual Gr1-winner) when 3YO filly Lone Rock (Fastnet Rock-Pride Of Pine, by Lion Cavern) scored a 1.75-lengths victory over her older rivals in yesterday's $350,000 Gr1 The Goodwood (1200m) at Morphettville. Lone Rock (ridden by Clare Lindop for trainer Robert Smerdon) defeated favoured fellow 3YO filly Crystal Lily (Stratum-Crystal Snip, by Snippets) & 5YO gelding Pinwheel (Lonhro-Quilt, by Danehill). Lone Rock (a $75,000 yearling consigned by Glastonbury Farms & purchased by Aquanita Racing at the 2009 Magic Millions January Gold Coast Sale) now has 3 wins (also including 2010's Gr3 TBV Champagne Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley) & 4 placings (including 2010's Gr3 Red Anchor Stakes over 1200m at Mooney Valley & Magic Millions Classic over 1200m at Morphettville) from 11 starts for $397,578 earnings.
