Spright Wins Listed Brian Crowley Stakes

Monday, 17th October 2016

At Royal Randwick in Sydney on Saturday, Yarraman Park's Gr3-winning & 4-time Gr1-placed stallion Hinchinbrook (Fastnet Rock-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a black-type success when 3YO filly Spright (Hinchinbrook-Dashoff, by Dash for Cash) scored by 2.8 lengths for trainer Garry Frazer in the $150,000 Listed Brian Crowley Stakes (1200m) for 3YOs, over 3YO colt Star Of Monsoon (Lonhro-Monsoon Wedding, by Danehill) & fellow 3YO filly Faraway Town (Not a Single Doubt-London Calling, by Dehere). This was the first stakes victory for the talented Spright who improved her record to 2 wins and 4 placings (including the Gr3 ATC Percy Sykes Stakes & Listed ATC Lonhro Plate) from 7 starts for $210,300 earnings. Spright, who hails from the same female family as Gr1 Doomben 10,000 winner Ideal Planet, Gr1 Queensland Derby winner Our Planet, and stakes winning sprinter Kaepernick, was a $100,000 purchase at the 2015 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Grange Thoroughbreds.
