Legless Veuve Wins Gr3 Manfred Stakes
At Caulfield in Melbourne Coolmore's former Gr1-winning Champion Australian Sire Fastnet Rock (Danehill-Piccadilly Circus, by Royal Academy) celebrated a group success when 3YO filly Legless Veuve (Pins-Hyades, by O'Reilly) scored by 0.8-length for trainer Stuart Webb in the $150,000 Gr3 Manfred Stakes (1200m) for 3YOs, over 3YO colt Into Orbit (Northern Meteor-Rockin Babe, by Rock Of Gibraltar) and 3YO gelding Hey Doc (Duporth-Heyington Honey, by General Nediym). Having her first start since running in the Gr1 Thousand Guineas last October, Legless Veuve, a NZ$150,000 yearling consigned by Waikato Stud at the 2015 NZB National Yearling Sales Series, took her record to 3 wins (including the Gr2 Thousand Guineas Prelude) and a placing from 6 starts for $248,400 earnings. She is a full-sister to Gr3 Mannerism Stakes winner & Gr1 Telegraph Handicap placegetter Tootsie.
