Skyerush Wins Belle Of The Turf Stakes

Monday, 17th October 2011

Ampulla Lodge stallion Super Jet (Dayjur-Amelia Bearhart, by Bold Hour) recorded his 1st stakes-winner when top-weighted 6YO mare Skyerush (Super Jet-Bally Aura, by Bellotto) finished strongly from back in the field to score a 1-length victory in yesterday’s $100,000 Listed Belle Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) for fillies & mares at Gosford in NSW. Equal-favourite Skyerush (ridden by Hugh Bowman for trainer Guy Walter) defeated 4YO mare Quidnunc (Lonhro-Dorky, by Grand Lodge) & equal-favourite 5YO mare Miss Keepsake (Keeper-Jacilo, by Entrepreneur). Skyerush took her record to 7 wins & 13 placings (including last start’s Listed Angst Stakes over 1400m at Rosehill on October 8, plus September’s Listed Patinack Farm Tibbie Stakes over 1400m at Newcastle, June’s Listed Winter Cup over 2400m at Rosehill, May’s Listed McKell Cup over 2400m at Rosehill & April’s Gr2 Emancipation Stakes over 1600m at Randwick) from 27 starts for $309,560 earnings.
