Metallic Crown Wins Gr3 Ming Dynasty Quality
At Royal Randwick in Sydney, ill-fated Widden Stud sire Northern Meteor (Encosta de Lago-Explosive, by Fappiano) added a Group success when 3YO colt Metallic Crown (Northern Meteor-Pegasus Queen, by Fusaichi Pegasus) scored by 0.5-length for trainer Chris Waller in the $125,000 Gr3 Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) for 3YOs, over 3YO gelding Tatoosh (Beneteau-Miss Columbus, by Spinning World) & 3YO filly Kimberley Star (Star Witness-Kiss the Sun, by Anabaa). This was the first stakes victory for Metallic Crown who took his record to 2 wins and 2 placings from 4 starts for $120,910 earnings. Metallic Crown was a $190,000 purchase by Ingham Racing at the 2014 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale from the draft of Luskin Park Stud.
