Fontein Ruby Wins Listed Alexandra Stakes

Monday, 30th March 2015

At Moonee Valley in Melbourne, Blue Gum Farm's dual Gr1-winnig stallion Turffontein (Johannesburg-Spirit Of Grace, by Dr Grace) added a black-type success when 3YO filly Fontein Ruby (Turffontein-Charming Ruby, by Rubiton) scored by 1.25-lengths for trainer Robert Smerdon in the $120,000 Listed Alexandra Stakes (1600m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies Bahamas (Teofilo-St Trinians, by Black Hawk) & Wawail (Lonhro-El Daana, by Redoute's Choice). Fontein Ruby, who was a $50,000 purchase by Aquanita Racing at the 2013 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Blue Gum Farm, took her record to 5 wins (including the Gr2 Edward Manifold Stakes & Gr3 Caulfield Classic) and 5 placings (including the Gr2 Angus Armanasco Stakes) from 16 starts for $873,370 earnings.
