Monday, 16th March 2015

At Flemington in Melbourne, former Australian Champion Sire & 11-time Gr1-winning Darley World Champion Miler Lonhro (Octagonal-Shadea, by Straight Strike) added a Group success when 3YO filly Wawail (Lonhro-El Daana, by Redoute's Choice) scored by 0.5-length for trainers David Hayes and Tom Dabernig in the $200,000 Gr2 Kewney Stakes (1400m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies Sabatini (Street Cry-Royal Sash, by Royal Academy) & Vezalay (Shamardal-Tactfully, by Flying Spur). Wawail boosted her impressive strike rate to 5 wins (including the Listed City of Greater Dandenong Stakes) and 1 placing (the Gr3 Vanity Stakes) from 6 starts for $298,000 earnings. A homebred for Shadwell Stud, Wawail is the first foal to race from Gr2 Edward Manifold Stakes winner El Daana.
