Court Wins Champagne Classic

Monday, 19th May 2008

Former Widden Stud shuttler Anabaa (Danzig-Balbonella, by Gay Mecene) added a juvenile group success when his filly Court (Anabaa-Splish, by Zeditave) came from well back in the field to score a 1.5-lengths victory against the males in the $150,000 Gr2 Champagne Classic (1200m) for 2YOs at Doomben. Court (ridden by Jim Byrne for trainer Clarry Connors) defeated the colts Captain Fantastic (Fantastic Light-Regal Ash, by Green Desert) & previously unbeaten favourite Cat D'Antibes (Tale Of The Cat-What Fun, by Canny Lad). Court (a $180,000 yearling at the 2007 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) now has a win & a runner-up from 2 starts for $102,500 earnings.
