Monday, 23rd May 2011

Gr1-winning NZ Cambridge Stud shuttler Stravinsky (Nureyev-Fire The Groom, by Blushing Groom) added a group success when favoured 5YO gelding Firebolt (Stravinsky-Woodsong, by Woodman) scored a 1.25-lengths victory in the $115,000 weight-for-age Gr3 Lord Mayor's Cup (1615m) at Doomben. Firebolt (ridden by Hugh Bowman for trainer Roger James) defeated 4YO mare St Germaine (Keeper-Selenium, by Straight Strike) & 6YO gelding Tagus (Encosta De Lago-Lady Capel, by Last Tycoon). Firebolt now has 8 wins (also including 2010's Gr2 Shannon Stakes over 1500m at Rosehill) & 8 placings (including 2010's Listed Centenary Classic Mile over 1600m at Eagle Farm & 2009's NZ Gr2 Avondale Guineas over 1600m) from 30 starts for $369,488 earnings.
