Brambles Wins Gr1 Queensland Derby

Tuesday, 12th June 2012

NZ-based multiple Gr1-winning stallion Savabeel (Zabeel-Savannah Success, by Success Express) added a Gr1 triumph when favoured gelding Brambles (Savabeel-Prickle, by Pins) notched his 3rd successive win with a 1.25-lengths victory in the $500,000 Gr1 Queensland Derby (2400m) for 3YOs at Eagle Farm. Brambles (ridden by Brad Rawiller for trainer Peter Moody) defeated the filly Quintessential (Fast 'n' Famous-Florette, by Sword Dance) & fellow gelding Westsouthwest (Darci Brahma-Southern Sunset, by Polish Precedent). Brambles (a $100,000 yearling consigned by Waikato Stud at the 2010 NZ Bloodstock Premier Sale at Karaka) took his record to 5 wins (also including both May's Gr3 Grand Prix Stakes over 2200m at Doomben & Gr3 Rough Habit Plate over 2000m at Doomben) & 4 placings (including May's Gr3 Gunsynd Classic over 1600m at Eagle Farm) from 10 starts for $574,338 earnings.
