Alberton Park Wins June Stakes

Tuesday, 12th June 2012

NZ Windsor Park Stud's Gr1-winning Australian-bred stallion Thorn Park (Spinning World-Joy, by Bluebird) added a black-type success (& 16th individual stakes-winner) when favoured 5YO mare Alberton Park (Thorn Park-Alberton Star, by Stylish Century) scored a 0.75-length victory in the $100,000 Listed June Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens in Sydney. Alberton Park (ridden by Tommy Berry for trainer John O'Shea) defeated 4YO gelding Stratana (Stratum-Evana, by Entrepreneur) & 6YO gelding Skytrain (Lonhro-Que Sera Sera, by Luskin Star). Alberton Park (initially a NZ$200,000 yearling consigned by Windsor Park at the 2008 NZB Premier Sale at Karaka & subsequently a $150,000 purchase as a 4YO mare at the 2011 Magic Millions National Sale) took her record to 7 wins & 16 placings (including March's Listed Wenona Girl Handicap over 1200m at Randwick & February's Listed Triscay Stakes over 1200m at Rosehill, plus 2011's Listed Bright Shadow Handicap over 1200m at Doomben) from 34 starts for $383,700 earnings.
