Monday, 4th June 2012

In Singapore, European champion 4-time Gr1-winning shuttler Shamardal (Giant's Causeway-Helsinki, by Machiavellian) added a group win when his Australian-bred gelded son Gingerbread Man (Shamardal-Quaffle, by Hurricane Sky) scored a .75-length victory in the S$300,000 (A$240,000) Gr2 Stewards' Cup (1400m) for 4YOs at Kranji. Gingerbread Man (ridden by Opie Bosson for trainer Bruce Marsh) defeated New Zealand-bred fellow geldings Rafaga (Lord Of Warriors-Behind Bars) & Hammer Down (O'Reilly-Our Prized Rose). Former Singapore Champion 2YO & reigning Champion 3YO Gingerbread Man (a $30,000 yearling consigned by Rothwell Park at the 2009 Magic Millions Premier Sale on the Gold Coast) now has 11 wins (also including 2011's Gr1 Singapore Guineas over 1600m, Gr2 3YO Classic over 1400m at Kranji & 2011's Gr3 3YO Sprint over 1200m, Gr2 Chairman's Trophy over 1800m plus 2010's Magic Millions Juvenile Championship over 1200m) & 7 placings from 21 starts.
