Galah Wins Lightway Australia Stakes

Monday, 17th October 2011

Flagship Arrowfield Stud stallion & former Australian Champion Sire Redoute’s Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a black-type success (& 79th individual stakes-winner world-wide) when his colt Galah (Redoute’s Choice-Dink, by Distorted Humor) notched his 3rd successive victory by motoring home from the tail of the field (after starting from the extreme outside barrier) to score by a half-neck in the $100,000 Listed Lightway Australia Stakes (1400m) for 3YO colts & geldings at Caulfield. Galah (ridden by Kerrin McEvoy for trainer Peter Snowden) defeated favoured & top-weighted fellow colt Matshead (Written Tycoon-Balsamico, by Redoute’s Choice) & another colt Highly Recommended (Fastnet Rock-Suggestive, by Al Hareb). Galah now has 3 wins & a runner-up from 4 starts for $163,900 earnings. (Click on the link for full race details from Group Race Results at AAP Racing.)
