Thump Wins Gr2 Silver Shadow Stakes
At Warwick Farm, deceased former Vinery Stud shuttler Red Ransom (Roberto-Arabia, by Damascus) added a group success when 3YO filly Thump (Red Ransom-Oomph, by Flying Spur) broke her maiden status when scoring by 0.1-length for trainer John Thompson in the $175,000 Gr2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies Sweet Idea (Snitzel-Flidais, by Timber Country) & Montsegur (New Approach-Chatoyant, by Flying Spur). This was Thump's first stakes success and took her record to 1 win & 2 placings (including the Gr3 Sweet Embrace Stakes) from 7 starts for $147,250 earnings.
