Monday, 14th October 2013

At Newmarket in the UK, 2YO colt Astaire (Intense Focus-Runway Dancer, by Dansili) scored by 0.5-length for trainer Kevin Ryan in the £200,000 Gr1 Middle Park Stakes (6 furlongs) for 2YOs, over fellow colts Hot Streak (Iffraaj-Ashirah, by Housebuster) & Justice Day (Acclamation-Rock Exhibition, by Rock of Gibraltar). This was Astaire's first Gr1 victory and took his record to 4 wins (including the Gr2 Gimcrack Stakes at York) from 5 starts for £249,383 earnings. The victory also gave his Gr1 Dewhurst Stakes-winning sire Intense Focus (Giant's Causeway-Daneleta, by Danehill) his first Gr1 winner.
