Éclair Surprise Wins UCI Stakes

Tuesday, 5th October 2010

Durham Lodge Thoroughbred Stud's Gr1 Victoria Derby winner Blackfriars (Danehill-Kensington Gardens, by Grosvenor) added a black-type success when his colt Éclair Surprise (Blackfriars-French Scene, by Scenic) powered home from last to grab the verdict in a 3-way photo-finish to the $150,000 Listed UCI Stakes (1800m) for 3YOs at Flemington. Éclair Surprise (ridden by Luke Nolen for trainer Peter Moody) scored by a long-neck from the gelding Almindoro (Redoute's Choice-Alalunga, by Machiavellian) with a further short-neck to fellow colt Shadowofexcellence (Redoute's Choice-Tugela, by Riverman). Éclair Surprise (a $65,000 yearling consigned by Durham Lodge at the 2009 Magic Millions Perth Sale) now has 2 wins from 3 starts for $99,175 earnings.
