Shannara Wins Ladies Day Cup

Friday, 4th November 2011

Former Australian Horse-Of-The-Year & 10-times Gr1-winning stallion Octagonal (Zabeel-Eight Carat, by Pieces Of Eight) added a black-type success when 5YO mare Shannara (Octagonal-Shadea, by Straight Strike) scored a 2.5-lengths victory in yesterday’s $150,000 Listed Ladies Day Cup (1300m) at Hawkesbury. Shannara (ridden by Christian Reith for trainer Peter Snowden) defeated favoured & top-weighted 5YO gelding Title (Honours List-Claudia, by Al Jaasi) & 6YO gelding Firebolt (Stravinsky-Woodsong, by Woodman). Shannara (a full-sister to former Australian Racehorse-Of-The-Year & 11-time Gr1-winning World Champion Miler Lonhro) took her record to 4 wins (also including May’s Listed Arrowfield Stud Dark Jewel Classic over 1400m at Scone) & 7 placings (including April's Gr2 Emancipation Stakes over 1600m at Randwick, plus 2010's Listed Angst Stakes over 1400m at Randwick & Listed James Carr Stakes over 1400m at Randwick) from 16 starts for $368,330 earnings.
