Blahnik Wins Wylie Handicap

Monday, 15th September 2008

Lindsay Park's ill-fated stallion & 1994 Gr1 Melbourne Cup winner Jeune (Kalaglow-Youthful, by Green Dancer) added a black-type success when 6YO gelding Blahnik (Jeune-Gift Bouquet, by King's High) scored a long-neck victory in the $70,000 Listed W.H.Wylie Handicap (1100m) at Morphettville to take this race for the 2nd year in succession. Blahnik (ridden by Dominic Tourneur for trainer Jon O'Connor) defeated 5YO mare Soaressa (Twining-Wedgetail Eagle, by Lure) & 8YO gelding Royal Ida (Star Pyramul-Star Of Ida, by Paint The Stars). Blahnik (a $28,000 yearling at the 2004 Magic Millions Adelaide Sale) now has 6 wins (also including 2006's Gr3 Adelaide Guineas over 1600m at Morphettville) & 4 placings (including March's Gr3 Evwright.com Stakes over 1100m at Morphettville) from 22 starts for $306,700 earnings.
