Tulip Wins Gr3 Magic Night Stakes
At Rosehill Gardens in NSW, At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Coolmore’s Triple Crown winning 2YO Champion Pierro (Lonhro-Miss Right Note, by Daylami) secured a Group winner in his debut crop when 2YO filly Tulip (Pierro-Musidora, by Rock of Gibraltar) showed she had blossomed even further from her Gr1 Blue Diamond campaign in winning by 1.8 lengths from fellow 2YO filly Alizee (Sepoy-Essaouira, by Exceed and Excel) and Memento (Your Song-Snapshots, by Success Express) in the Gr3 Magic Night Stakes ($176,000) for 2YO fillies. A $400,000 purchase from the draft of Curraghmore at the 2016 NZB National Yearling Sale, Tulip takes her record to 2 wins and 1 placing from 4 starts for $238,375 in earnings. This is a Champion family which includes stallions Flying Spur and Encosta de Lago as well as Saturday’s Gr2 Kewney Stakes winner I Am a Star (see report).
