Sultry Feeling Wins Gr3 Birthday Card Stakes
At Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, Coolmore's former dual Champion Australian Sire Encosta De Lago (Fairy King-Shoal Creek, by Star Way) added a Group success when 4YO mare Sultry Feeling (Encosta de Lago-Visual Emotion, by Silver Deputy) scored by 0.2-length for trainer James Cummings in the $150,000 Gr3 Birthday Card Stakes (1200m) for 3YO+ f&m, over fellow 4YO mare Lucky Can Be (Nadeem-Yes She Can Cancan, by Canny Lad) & 3YO filly Perignon (Snitzel-Last Blaze, by Narita Brian). Sultry Feeling took her record to 5 wins (including the Gr3 Triscay Stakes) and 3 placings (including the Gr2 ATC Magic Night Stakes) from 19 starts for $412,125 earnings. A homebred for Eduardo Cojuangco's Gooree Stud, Sultry Feeling is a half sister to multiple Gr3-winner Swift Alliance and hails from the US family of Breeders' Cup Mile winner and successful sire Cozzene.
