Black Minnaloushe Adds South Africa Gr3

Tuesday, 12th June 2012

Also in South Africa, former NZ Windsor Park shuttler Black Minnaloushe (Storm Cat-Coral Dance, by Green Dancer) added a group success when 4YO gelding Gold Onyx (Black Minnaloushe-Egoli Lass, by Kaapstad) scored a 1.25-lengths victory in the R200,000 (A$25,000) Gr3 Cup Trial (1800m) at Clairwood. Gold Onyx (ridden by Anton Marcus for trainer Sean Tarry) defeated 8YO gelding Buy And Sell (National Emblem-Trade Enquiry, by Qui Danzig) & fellow 4YO gelding English Garden (Camden Park-Royal Habit, by Dominion Royale). Gold Onyx (a NZ$80,000 yearling consigned by Windsor Park at the 2009 NZ Bloodstock Premier Sale at Karaka) took his record to 6 wins (also including May's Listed The Sledgehammer over 1800m at Scottsville, plus 2010's Gr1 Premier's Champion Stakes over 1600m at Greyville & Gr3 Protea Stakes over 1100m at Turffontein) & 4 placings (including April's Listed Easter Handicap over 2000m at Clairwood & March's Gr3 King's Cup over 1600m at Greyville) from 24 starts.
