Rock Of Gibraltar Adds US Gr3

Monday, 12th May 2008

Also in the US, Coolmore's 7-time Gr1-winning shuttler Rock Of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) added a group success when Irish-bred daughter Sweeter Still (Rock Of Gibraltar-Beltisaal, by Belmez) scored by a nose in the US$109,000 Gr3 Senorita Stakes (8 furlongs on turf) for 3YO fillies at Hollywood Park. Favourite Sweeter Still (ridden by Martin Garcia for trainer Jeff Mullins) defeated Magical Fantasy (Diesis-Kissing Gate, by Easy Goer) & fast-finishing Bel Air Sizzle (Unusual Heat-Bel Air Belle, by Runaway Groom). At her previous start, Sweeter Still finished runner-up in the Gr2 Providencia Stakes (8 furlongs on turf) at Santa Anita on April 5, after winning March's Listed China Doll Stakes (8 furlongs on turf) at Santa Anita; overall she now has 3 wins from 6 starts for US$184,637 earnings.
