Rohan Wins Belmont Guineas

Monday, 25th June 2012

Durham Lodge Thoroughbred Stud's Gr1 Victoria Derby winner Blackfriars (Danehill-Kensington Gardens, by Grosvenor) added a black-type success (plus 3rd-placing) when favoured colt Rohan (Blackfriars-Voltage Pak, by Carry A Smile) made it 4 wins & a placing from his last 5 starts with victory by a long-head in the $80,000 Listed Belmont Guineas (1600m) for 3YOs at Belmont Park. Rohan (ridden by Glen Smith for trainer Vaughan Sigley) defeated fellow colt Accelarometer (McFlirt-Recoverable, by Metal Storm) & the gelding Black Uma (Blackfriars-Uma Princess, by Umatilla). Rohan (a $61,000 yearling consigned by Durham Lodge at the 2010 Magic Millions Perth Sale) took his record to 5 wins (also including April's Gr2 WATC Derby over 2400m at Ascot & March's Listed J.C.Roberts Stakes over 1800m at Ascot) & a placing (in March's Listed Melvista Stakes over 2200m at Ascot) from 11 starts for $399,225 earnings.
