Ice Chariot Wins Tattersall's Cup
Deceased Eureka Stud stallion Semipalatinsk (Nodouble-School Board, by Reverse) added a group success when Gr1-winning 4YO gelding Ice Chariot (Semipalatinsk-Snow Chariot, by Chariot) scored a 1.25-lengths victory in the $200,000 Gr3 Tattersall's Cup (2200m) at Eagle Farm. Top-weighted Ice Chariot (ridden by Stathi Katsidis for trainer Ron Maund) defeated 6YO gelding Rampant Lion (Lion Hunter-La Gypsy, by Celestial Dancer) & 4YO mare Mirkola Lass (Prized-Gun Lady, by Guns Of Navarone). Last start Ice Chariot (a $37,500 yearling at the Brisbane Bonus Sale) finished 3rd in the Gr2 Brisbane Cup (2400m) at Eagle Farm on June 11; overall he now has 7 wins (also including 2006's Gr1 Queensland Derby over 2400m at Eagle Farm & Gr3 Grand Prix Stakes over 2100m) & 2 placings (including the 2006 Gr3 Doomben Classic over 1615m) from 22 starts for $860,100 earnings.
