English Wins Gr2 Reisling Stakes

Monday, 9th March 2015

At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Coolmore's former dual Champion Australian Sire Encosta De Lago (Fairy King-Shoal Creek, by Star Way) added a Group success when 2YO filly English (Encosta de Lago-Court, by Anabaa) scored by 0.8-length for trainer Gai Waterhouse in the $300,000 Gr2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) for 2YO fillies, over fellow fillies Ottoman (Exceed and Excel-Byzantine, by Elusive Quality) & Fireworks (Snitzel-Calvinia, by Varick). This was the first stakes victory for the Kelly family's Newhaven Park-bred English who took her record to 2 wins from 2 starts for $198,950 earnings. Like her high-profile stable-mate Vancouver, English will now head to the $3.5 million Gr1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on 21 March. "Today was her chance to say 'yes I am a real live Golden Slipper hope'. She goes in on her third run which is perfect timing," Waterhouse told TVN.
