English Wins Gr2 Challenge Stakes
At Randwick in NSW, Coolmore's former dual Champion Australian Sire Encosta De Lago (Fairy King-Shoal Creek, by Star Way) added a Gr1 success when 4YO mare English (Encosta De Lago-Court, by Anabaa) scored by a nose for trainers Gai Waterhouse & Aidrian Bott in the $500,000 Gr2 Challenge Stakes (1000m) for 3YOs+, over 4YO gelding Redzel (Snitzel-Millrich, by Rubiton) and 5YO entire Supido (Sebring-Lady Succeed, by Brian's Time). English, a Newhaven Park homebred, took her record to 5 wins (also including the Gr1 All Aged Stakes, 2016 Gr2 Challenge Stakes & Gr2 Reisling Stakes) & 2 placings (including the Gr1 Golden Slipper Stakes & Gr1 TJ Smith Stakes) from 13 starts for $2,058,800 earnings.
