Questing Wins US Gr1 TVG Alabama Stakes
Also at Saratoga in the US, Gr1-winning Darley shuttler & 2007 Gr1 Kentucky Derby runner-up Hard Spun (Danzig-Turkish Tryst, by Turkoman) added a Gr1 triumph when sophomore filly Questing (Hard Spun–Chercheuse, by Seeking the Gold) scored by a spectacular 9-lengths for trainer Kiaran McLaughlin over In Lingerie (Empire Maker–Cat Chat, by Storm Cat) & Via Villaggio (Bernadini–Hoh Buzzard, by Alhaarth) in the US$600,000 Gr1 Alabama Stakes (2000m) for 3YO fillies. Questing, whose 1st 3 starts in the UK produced 2 Group placings, took her record to 4 wins (including last start's Gr1 American Oaks at Saratoga) from 9 starts.
