Lite'n In My Veins Wins Gr3 Northerly Stakes
At Ascot racecourse in Perth on Saturday, Coolmore's brilliant 4-time Gr1-winning stallion Henrythenavigator (Kingmambo-Sequoyah, by Sadler's Wells) added a Group success when 4YO gelding Lite'n In My Veins (Henrythenavigator-Beauty World, by Danehill Dancer) scored a fast-finishing 0.15 length win for trainer Fred Kersley in the $150,000 Gr3 Northerly Stakes (1400m) for 3YOs, over siblings 5YO mare Ideal Image (More Than Ready-Reflected Image, by Bluebird) & 4YO mare Perfect Reflection (More Than Ready-Reflected Image, by Bluebird). This was the third stakes victory for the progressive Lite'n In My Veins who improved his record to 5 wins (including the Gr3 Lee-Steere Classic & Listed Birthday Stakes) and 1 placing from 7 starts for $405,800 earnings. Raced by a syndicate headed by his breeder Oakland Park Stud, Lite'n In My Veins is a half-brother to Gr3 ATC Frank Packer Plate & Gr3 ATC Carbine Club Stakes winner Hi World (High Chaparral) and Listed winner Loveyamadly (Bel Esprit) from the Danehill Dancer mare Beauty World.
