Riziz Wins Creswick Stakes

Tuesday, 12th June 2012

Wagga Wagga-based Kooringal Stud's dual Gr2-winning stallion Zariz (Mukkadamah-Divine Dash, by Tolomeo) added a black-type success when equal-top-weighted gelding Riziz (Zariz-Priya, by Covetous) scored a half-length victory in the $100,000 Listed A.R.Creswick Stakes (1200m) for 3YOs at Flemington in Melbourne. Riziz (ridden by Chris Symons for trainer Ken Sweeney) defeated fellow gelding & equal-top-weight Zamorar (Scandal Keeper-Chloris, by Scenic) & favoured filly Lady Melksham (Artie Schiller-Oak Park Carashan, by Keltrice). Riziz took his record to 4 wins (also including May's Listed Adelaide Guineas over 1600m at Morphettville) & 4 placings (including April's Listed H.C.Nitschke Stakes over 1400m at Morphettville) from 10 starts for $217,300 earnings.
