One More Honey Wins Gr2 Sweet Embrace Stakes
At Royal Randwick in Sydney, former Vinery and now Ridgeview Park-based stallion Onemorenomore (Red Ransom-Palia, by Last Tycoon) added a black-type success when 2YO filly One More Honey (Onemorenomore-One Funny Honey, by Distorted Humor) scored by 1 length for trainer John Thompson in the $200,000 Gr2 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m) for 2YO fillies, over fellow fillies Arctic Angel (Hard Spun-Icy Maiden, by Xaar) & Teaspoon (Snitzel-Patronella, by Mister C). This was the first stakes victory for One More Honey who improved her record to 2 wins from 3 starts for $158,500 earnings. A homebred for Emirates Park, One More Honey is the second foal to race from the US-bred mare One Funny Honey (Distorted Humor), a daughter of Australian-bred mare Lan Kwai Fong (Bluebird). On the track, Lan Kwai Fong (originally a $110,000 yearling at the Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) won the Gr3 The Vanity & finished runner-up in both the Gr1 VRC Oaks & Gr2 Group Wakeful Stakes. After her retirement, Lan Kwai Fong moved to the US in 2001 & was subsequently sold for US$450,000 at the 2003 Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale.
