Artistry Wins Gr3 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap
At Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, European champion 4-time Gr1-winning former Darley shuttler Shamardal (Giant's Causeway-Helsinki, by Machiavellian) added a Group success when 4YO mare Artistry (Shamardal-Lady Peony, by Belong to Me) scored by 0.2-length for trainers Peter & Paul Snowden in the $125,000 Gr3 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap (1350m) for 3YO+, over fellow 4YO mare Nancy (Big Brown-Shalimar Sky, by Hurricane Sky) & 5YO gelding Amovatio (Al Maher-Grand Ovation, by Scenic). This was the first stakes victory for Artistry who took her record to 6 wins and 2 placings from 12 starts for $235,485 earnings. Artistry is out of the unraced Belong To Me mare Lady Peony and hails from the female family of three-time Gr1-winning champion filly Samantha Miss, Gr1 Adelaide Cup winner Cronus and multiple Group winner Pravda.
