Monday, 31st October 2011

Former shuttler Elusive Quality (Gone West-Touch Of Greatness, by Hero's Honor) added a Gr1 triumph when Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum's favoured home-bred colt & last season’s Australian Champion 2YO Sepoy (Elusive Quality-Watchful, by Danehill) scored by a head in the $500,000 Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) for 3YOs at Flemington. Sepoy (ridden by Kerrin McEvoy for trainer Peter Snowden) defeated fellow colt Foxwedge (Fastnet Rock-Forest Native, by Forest Wildcat) & the filly Satin Shoes (Flying Spur-Star Satire, by Volksraad). Sepoy now has 9 wins (also including last start’s Gr2 Caulfield Sprint over 1100m at Caulfield on October 15, 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 10 starts for $3,863,000 earnings.
