Fasliyev Adds UK Black-Type

Monday, 23rd May 2011

Former shuttler Fasliyev (Nureyev-Mr P's Princess, by Mr Prospector) also added a UK black-type success when Irish-bred 6YO entire City Leader (Fasliyev-Kanmary, by Kenmare) gained the decision in a 3-way photo-finish to the £30,000 (A$47,000) Listed Festival Stakes (10 furlongs) for 4YOs & up at Goodwood. City Leader (ridden by Martin Dwyer for trainer Brian Meehan) scored by a head from Irish-bred 5YO gelding Class Is Class (Montjeu-Hector's Girl, by Hector Protector) with a further head to US-bred 4YO mare Principal Role (Empire Maker-Interim, by Sadler's Wells). City Leader (a half-brother to US Gr1 Breeders' Cup Sprint winner Lit De Justice) took his record to 4 wins (also including 2008's UK Listed Cocked Hat Stakes over 11 furlongs at Goodwood & 2007's UK Gr2 Royal Lodge Stakes over 8 furlongs at Ascot) & 4 placings (including 2008's French Gr2 Prix Guillaume D'Ornano over 2000m at Deauville & French Gr2 Prix Eugene Adam over 2000m at Maisons-Laffitte, plus 2007's UK Gr1 Racing Post Trophy over 8 furlongs at Doncaster & UK Gr3 Solario Stakes over 7 furlongs at Sandown Park) from 17 starts for £283,933 (A$440,000) earnings.
