Zestful Wins Gr3 Triscay Stakes
At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Arrowfield Stud's multiple Champion Australian Sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a Group success when 5YO mare Zestful (Redoute's Choice-Zest, by Marauding) scored by 0.2 length for trainer Kris Lees in the $150,000 Gr3 Triscay Stakes (1200m) for 4YO+ mares, over fellow 5YO mare Nancy (Big Brown-Shalimar Sky, by Hurricane Sky) & 4YO mare Dixie Blossoms (Street Sense-Whistle Dixie, by Star Way). This was the first stakes victory for Zestful who improved her record to 5 wins and 2 placings (including the Listed GCTC Silk Stocking Handicap) from 11 starts for $275,375 earnings. Zestful was a $90,000 purchase at the 2013 Magic Millions National Yearling Sale from the draft of Bellerive Stud.
