Gliding Wins Ethereal Stakes

Monday, 17th October 2011

Arrowfield Stud stallion & former Australian Champion Sire Flying Spur (Danehill-Rolls, by Mr Prospector) added a black-type success (& 84th individual stakes-winner world-wide) when daughter Gliding (Flying Spur-Marrego, by Marscay) scored a 1.5-lengths victory in the $100,000 Listed Ethereal Stakes (2000m) for 3YO fillies at Caulfield. Gliding (ridden by Darren Beadman for trainer Bart Cummings) defeated fast-finishing top-weighted favourite Dowager Queen (Savabeel-Dower, by Pins) & Gioe (Hussonet-Magical Miss, by Danehill). Gliding (a $280,000 yearling consigned by Orange Grove Thoroughbreds at the 2010 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) now has a win & 2 placings from 6 starts for $79,330 earnings.
