Shadows In The Sun Wins Gr1 South Australian Derby

Monday, 9th May 2011

In Australia, Gr3-winning & triple Gr2-placed Kitchwin Hills stallion Dane Shadow (Danehill-Slight Chance, by Centaine) added a Gr1 triumph (plus 4th individual stakes-winner & 2nd individual Gr1-winner) when front-running gelding Shadows In The Sun (Dane Shadow-Best Out West, by Best Western) scored a 0.75-length victory in yesterday's $350,000 Gr1 Betfair South Australian Derby (2500m) for 3YOs at Morphettville in Adelaide. Shadows In The Sun (ridden by Ben Melham for trainer Anthony Cummings) defeated the colt Echoes Of Heaven (Encosta De Lago-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) & the filly Lalla Rookh (Street Cry-Grand Manners, by Grand Lodge). Shadows In The Sun (a $280,000 yearling consigned by Kitchwin Hills at the 2009 Magic Millions January Gold Coast Sale) took his record to 3 wins & 3 placings (including April's Gr3 Carbine Club Stakes over 1600m at Randwick) from 18 starts for $391,050 earnings.
