Savoureux Wins Gr3 Wenona Girl Handicap
At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Little Avondale Stud's Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes-winning stallion Nadeem (Redoute's Choice-Candide, by Sound Reason) added a Group success when 4YO mare Savoureux (Nadeem-Ripe Plum, by Spectrum) scored by 0.8-length for trainer Kris Lees in the $150,000 Gr3 Wenona Girl Handicap (1200m) for 4YO+ mares, over 6YO mare Private Secretary (Husson-Secretaire, by Danehill) & fellow 4YO mare Flashing Speed (War Pass-Pink Pier, by Galileo). This was the second stakes victory for Savoureux who took her record to 6 wins (including the Listed BRC Mode Stakes) and 3 placings from 16 starts for $340,100 earnings. Savoureux was a $65,000 purchase by Prime Thoroughbreds at the 2013 Inglis Classic Yearling Sale from the draft of Edinglassie Stud.
