Celtic Swing Adds Irish Black-Type
Deceased Gr1-winning stallion & former Collingrove shuttler Celtic Swing (Damister-Celtic Ring, by Welsh Pageant) added an Irish black-type success when 5YO mare Midnight Soprano (Celtic Swing-Midnight Glimmer, by Dr Devious) scored a half-length victory in the €47,500 (A$61,000) Listed Saval Beg Stakes (14 furlongs) at Leopardstown. Midnight Soprano (ridden by Chris Hayes for trainer Paul Deegan) defeated 4YO entire Saddler's Rock (Sadler's Wells-Grecian Bride, by Groom Dancer) & front-running favoured fellow 5YO mare Unaccompanied (Danehill Dancer-Legend Has It, by Sadler's Wells). Midnight Soprano took her record to 6 wins & 2 placings from 10 starts for €105,865 (A$136,000) earnings.
