Alboran Sea Wins SAf Gr1 Allan Robertson Championship
At Scottsville in South Africa, 7-time Gr1-winning former shuttler Rock of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) celebrated a Gr1 success when 2YO Australian-bred filly Alboran Sea (Rock of Gibraltar-Lady's Light, by Toolighttoquit) scored by 2.25-lengths for trainer Mike de Kock in the R600,000 Gr1 Allan Robertson Championship (1200m) for 2YO fillies, over fellow 2YO Australian-bred filly Rich Girl (Rock Of Gibraltar-Miss Moguls, by Giant's Causeway) & One Fine Day (Trippi-Peace Bell, by Kingmambo). This was the first stakes victory for the undefeated Alboran Sea who took her record to 2 wins from 2 starts for R423,750 earnings. Alboran Sea was purchased for $105,000 by Form Bloodstock at the 2013 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Rosemont Stud. Interestingly, Alboran Sea's fourth dam is the dual Gr1-winning US mare Parading Lady, whose sire is none other than legendary Australian racehorse Bernborough. Watch the race below.
