Wednesday, 14th May 2008

In Europe, NZ Chequers Stud stallion Ishiguru (Danzig-Strategic Manuever, by Cryptoclearance) added an Irish group success when 4YO entire Ferneley (Ishiguru-Amber Tide, by Pursuit Of Love) led most of the way to win the Gr3 Amethyst Stakes (8 furlongs) at Leopardstown. Ferneley (ridden by W.Supple for trainer Francis Ennis) defeated 7YO entire Lord Admiral (El Prado-Lady Ilsley, by Trempolino) & 5YO gelding Excelerate (Mujadil-Perle d'Irlande, by Top Ville). Ferneley was a €24,000 (A$41,000) yearling at the 2005 Tattersalls Ireland September Sale. As a 2YO in 2006, he finished 3rd in both Ireland's Gr2 Futurity Stakes (7 furlongs) at The Curragh & the UK Gr3 Somerville Tattersall Stakes (7 furlongs) at Newmarket; & last year as a 3YO he finished runner-up in Ireland's Gr3 Ballysax Stakes (10 furlongs) at Leopardstown. Overall he now has 3 wins & 4 placings from 13 starts.
