Monday, 18th June 2012

On the Australian track, NZ Chequers Stud shuttler Ishiguru (Danzig-Strategic Manuever, by Cryptoclearance) added a black-type success when 4YO gelding Shenzhou Steeds (Ishiguru-Sun City, by Spectacular Love) scored a half-length victory in the $200,000 Listed Ipswich Cup (2150m) at Ipswich in Queensland. Shenzhou Steeds (ridden by Eddie Wilkinson for trainer Mike Moroney) defeated favoured 5YO gelding Kinnersley (Al Maher-Miss Radiant, by Geiger Counter) & 6YO gelding Warrior Within (King Cugat-Ava Bolli, by Volksraad). Shenzgou Steeds (passed-in for NZ$40,000 on a NZ$50,000 reserve when consigned by Chequers Stud at the 2009 NZB Select Yearling Sale at Karara) now has 6 wins (also including 2011's Listed Sunshine Coast Guineas over 1600m at Caloundra) & a runner-up from 14 starts for $267,574 earnings.
