By The Moon Wins Gr1 Ballerina Stakes

Monday, 28th August 2017

At Saratoga racecourse in the US, 5YO mare By The Moon (Indian Charlie-By The Light, by Malibu Moon) made it second time lucky when scoring a narrow head win for trainer Michelle Nevin in the US$500,000 Gr1 Ballerina Stakes (7 furlongs) for 3YO+ fillies & mares, defeating Highway Star & Carina Mia. By The Moon's second top-flight victory came exactly 12 months after her narrow loss in the 2016 edition of the Ballerina. Her record now reads 7 wins (including the Gr1 Frizette Stakes) and 8 placings (including the Gr1 Acorn Stakes & Gr1 Test Stakes) from 19 starts for over US$1.5 million in earnings.
