Monday, 17th October 2011

Former shuttler Elusive Quality (Gone West-Touch Of Greatness, by Hero's Honor) added a group success when Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum's favoured home-bred 3YO colt & last season’s Australian Champion 2YO Sepoy (Elusive Quality-Watchful, by Danehill) scored a 1.25-lengths victory over his older rivals in the $200,000 Gr2 Caulfield Sprint (1100m) at Caulfield. Sepoy (ridden by Kerrin McEvoy for trainer Peter Snowden) defeated 4YO mare Curtana (Exceed And Excel-Razor Blade, by Blazing Sword) & 6YO mare Mid Summer Music (Oamaru Force-Samsara Lady, by Nassipour). Sepoy now has 8 wins (also including both September’s Gr1 Manikato Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley & Gr2 Danehill Stakes over 1200m at Flemington, plus August’s Listed Vain Stakes over 1100m at Caulfield, April’s Gr1 Golden Slipper Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill, both February's Gr1 Patinack Farm Blue Diamond Stakes over 1200m at Caulfield & Gr3 Patinack Farm Blue Diamond Prelude over 1100m at Caulfield, in addition to January's Listed Patinack Farm Blue Diamond Preview over 1000m at Caulfield & 2010's Listed Maribyrnong Trial Stakes over 1000m at Flemington) & a runner-up (in March’s Gr2 Todman Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill) from 9 starts for $3,565,500 earnings.
