Amicus Wins Gr2 Let's Elope Stakes
At Flemington in Melbourne, Coolmore's Gr1-winning Danehill stallion Fastnet Rock (Danehill-Piccadilly Circus, by Royal Academy) added a Group success when 4YO mare Amicus (Fastnet Rock-Gold Chant, by El Moxie) scored by 0.3-length for trainer Chris Waller in the $200,000 Gr2 Let's Elope Stakes (1400m) for 4YO+ mares, over 5YO mares Precious Gem (Econsul-Gem of Gems, by Peintre Celebre) & May's Dream (New Approach-She's Archie, by Archway). Purchased for $500,000 by Chris Waller Racing at the 2013 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Tyreel Stud, Amicus took her record to 4 wins (including the Gr1 Thousand Guineas & Gr3 Toy Show Quality) and 4 placings (including the Gr2 MRC Thousand Guineas Prelude) from 14 starts for $662,485 earnings. Trainer Chris Waller said that Amicus would make her next appearance in the Gr1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on Saturday week.
