Ploverset Wins Listed Football Stakes
At Flemington in Melbourne, US Gr1-winning sprinter and Darley shuttler Street Boss (Street Cry-Blushing Ogygian, by Ogygian) built further on the momentum of his star Hong Kong 4YO Rapper Dragon when 2YO filly Ploverset (Street Boss-Edwina Georgie, by Testa Rossa) powered home on debut to tip out short-priced stablemate Madeenaty (Exceed and Excel-Set for Fame, by Reset) by 0.4 length in the $121,200 Listed Football Handicap (1000m) for powerful training trio David & Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig. Rounding out the placings was Sam's Image (All American-Illusionist, by Favorite Trick). Ploverset opened her bank account with $73,200 in earnings. She is the first foal of winning mare Edwina Georgie and descends to VRC Oaks placed filly Captiva.
