He Or She Wins Gr3 TAB Rewards Stakes
At Flemington in Melbourne, Rivercrest Park sire Kendel Star (Kenmare-Excited Angel, by Vice Regent) added a Group success when 6YO gelding He or She (Kendel Star-Danessa, by West Point) scored by 0.1 length for trainers David & Ben Hayes & Tom Dabernig in the $151,500 Gr3 TAB Rewards Stakes (1400m) over 6YO entire Hooked (Casino Prince-Absolute Lure, by Lure) and 6YO gelding Zebrinz (Sebring-Tycoon Milly, by Last Tycoon). In a victory that suggested further ground would suit, He or She will now likely return to Flemington on March 18 to defend his title in the Gr2 Blamey Stakes over 1600m. His victory in the TAB Rewards Stakes was his 10th (also including the Gr2 VRC Blamey Stakes) and his resume also includes 6 placings (including the Gr1 VRC Makybe Diva Stakes, Gr1 MRC Underwood Stakes & Gr1 MRC Caulfield Stakes) from 27 starts for earnings of $802,760.
