Singspiel Adds US Gr2

Monday, 30th May 2011

Also in the US, multiple Gr1-winning former shuttler & Dubai World Cup winner Singspiel (In The Wings-Glorious Song, by Halo) added a graded-stakes success when UK-bred 4YO mare Hibaayeb (Singspiel-Lady Zonda, by Lion Cavern) scored a 1-length victory in the US$150,000 Gr2 Sheepshead Bay Handicap (11 furlongs) for fillies & mares at Belmont Park in New York. Hibaayeb (ridden by John Velazquez for trainer Saeed Bin Suroor) defeated fellow 4YO mares Giant’s Play (Giant's Causeway-Playful Act, by Sadler's Wells) & UK-bred Cheetah (Tiger Hill-Kassiyra, by Kendor). Hibaayeb took her record to 4 wins (also including 2010’s Gr1 Yellow Ribbon Stakes over 10 furlongs at Hollywood Park & UK Gr2 Ribblesdale Stakes over 12 furlongs at Royal Ascot, plus 2009's UK Gr1 Meon Valley Stud Fillies Mile over 8 furlongs at Ascot) & 5 placings (including 2010’s French Gr1 Prix Saint-Alary over 2000m at Longchamp & 2009's UK Gr2 May Hill Stakes over 8 furlongs at Doncaster) from 13 starts for US$616,777 earnings.
