Selenia Wins Listed Festival Of Racing Stakes

Monday, 7th March 2016

At Flemington in Melbourne, Arrowfield Stud's multiple stakes-winning stallion Not A Single Doubt (Redoute's Choice-Single's Bar, by Rory's Jester) added a black-type success when the promising juvenile filly Selenia (Not A Single Doubt-Lunar Lady, by Hussonet) scored by a half-length for trainer Robbie Griffiths in the $120,000 Listed Festival of Racing Stakes (1000m) over fellow filly and valuable debutante Alter Call (Fastnet Rock-Response, by Charge Forward) & the filly Creativity (Master of Design-Voltara, by More Than Ready). A $30,000 bargain at the 2015 Inglis Sydney Easter Sale from the draft of Middlebrow Valley Lodge, Selenia broke her Maiden in the event to take her record to 1 win from 3 starts for $88,950 earnings. In her only other two outings she had finished 4th in the Gr2 Blue Diamond Prelude (f) & Gr3 Blue Diamond Preview (f), so the form was on the board for Selenia to break through. Her unraced dam, out of multiple stakes-performed Lunarspur, is a full sister to Gr2 winner Colorado Claire and a half-sister to Gr2 winner Moonovermanhattan.
