Final Salute Wins Listed JC Roberts Stakes
At Ascot in Perth, Arrowfield Stud's multiple stakes-winning stallion Not A Single Doubt (Redoute's Choice-Single's Bar, by Rory's Jester) added a black-type success when Bob & Sandra Peters' homebred 3YO gelding Final Salute (Not A Single Doubt-Sophia Babe, by Iglesia) won by a half-length for trainers Grant & Alana Williams in the $100,000 Listed JC Roberts Stakes (1800m) for 3YOs. Runner-up was well-named gelding Gatting (Hard Spun-Stubborn, by Lonhro) & fellow gelding Friaresque (Blackfriars-Pearlesque, by Statoblest). A 4th place finisher in the Gr2 Western Australian Guineas in November, Final Salute had placed last start in the Listed Lex Piper Stakes, and was sent off a well supported $3.50 second favourite. He now has 2 wins & 3 placings from 8 starts for $110,800 earnings.
