Miss Fantabulous Wins Irongate Classic
Coolmore sire Encosta de Lago (Fairy King-Shoal Creek, by Star Way) added a black-type success when daughter Miss Fantabulous (Encosta de Lago-Miss Chanel, by Splendent) led in the afternoon's 3rd female trifecta against the males in yesterday's $75,000 Listed Irongate Classic (1100m) for 3YOs at Morphettville. Miss Fantabulous (ridden by Glen Boss for trainer Mathew Ellerton) scored by a short-head from fellow fillies Devil Moon (King Cugat-Classy Babe, by Masterclass) & Ambika (Indian Danehill-Ambola, by Rory's Jester). Miss Fantabulous (a $380,000 yearling at the 2005 Inglis Easter Sale) now has 2 wins & 3 placings from 11 starts for $138,250 prize-money.
