Dutch Art Wins UK Gr1 Middle Park Stakes
Unbeaten juvenile Dutch Art (Medicean-Halland Park Lass, by Spectrum) followed his victory in August's French Gr1 Darley Prix Morny (1200m) at Deauville with a 2-lengths win in the £170,000 (A$408,000) Gr1 Shadwell Middle Park Stakes (6 furlongs) for 2YO colts at Newmarket. Favourite Dutch Art (ridden by Frankie Dettori for trainer Peter Chapple-Hyam) defeated Wi Dud (Elnadim-Hopesay, by Warning) & Captain Marvelous (Invincible Spirit-Shesasmartlady, by Dolphin Street). Dutch Art was a 14,500 guineas (A$37,000) bargain at the 2004 UK Tattersalls December Foal Sale; he now boasts 4 successive victories (also including the UK Gr2 Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot in June) for £278,729 (A$669,000) earnings. Meanwhile Dutch Art's dam Halland Park Lass (in foal to 1st-crop sire Tobougg) is among the highlight lots at this year's Tattersalls December Sale, where she & her Kyllachy filly foal are both to be sold by Trickledown Stud.
