Gold Symphony Wins Listed National Sprint
At Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory, Chatswood Stud's Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes winning stallion Reward For Effort (Exceed And Excel-Miss Prospect, by Rory's Jester) added a black-type success when 4YO bay gelding Gold Symphony (Reward for Effort-Tzaress, by Stravinsky) scored by 1.8 lengths for trainers Peter & Paul Snowden in the $130,000 Listed National Sprint (1400m) for 3YO+, over 6YO gelding Happy Clapper (Teofilo-Busking, by Encosta de Lago) & fellow 4YO gelding Handfast (Street Cry-Lobola, by Anabaa). Gold Symphony, who hails from the same female line as Golden Slipper winner Belle Du Jour, is raced by Triple Crown Syndications who purchased him for $100,000 at the 2014 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Grange Thoroughbreds. This was the third stakes victory for Gold Symphony who improved his record to 5 wins (including the Gr3 McNeil Stakes & Gr3 Vain Stakes) and 3 placings from 17 starts for $417,500 earnings.
