Whispering Brook Wins Gr3 Gimcrack Stakes
At Ascot in Western Australia, Yarraman Park's Gr3-winning & 4-time Gr1-placed stallion Hinchinbrook (Fastnet Rock-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a Group success when 2YO filly Whispering Brook (Hinchinbrook-Artful Whisper, by Machiavellia) scored by 0.45-length for trainer Simon Miller in the $150,000 Gr3 Gimcrack Stakes (1100m) for 2YO fillies, over fellow fillies Spangled Impact (Demerit-Spangles, by Perugino) & Caipirinha (Nicconi-Prostar, by Starcraft). This was successive stakes victories for Whispering Brook who extended her unbeaten record to 3 wins (including the Listed Supremacy Stakes) from 3 starts for $198,600 earnings. Whispering Brook was a $450,000 purchase by Aquanita Racing at the 2014 Magic Millions National Weanling Sale from the draft of Hillside Thoroughbreds.
