Erewhon Wins Gr1 Spring Champion Stakes

Tuesday, 5th October 2010

Gr3-winning & multiple Gr1-placed Darley stallion Commands (Danehill-Cotehele House, by My Swanee) added Gr1 triumph (& 32nd individual stakes-winner) when Sheikh Mohammed's gelded son Erewhon (Commands-Pseudonym, by Quest For Fame) scored by a neck in the $400,000 Gr1 Inglis Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) for 3YOs at Randwick. Erewhon (ridden by Hugh Bowman for trainer Peter Snowden) defeated favoured colt & stable-mate Retrieve (Rahy-Hold To Ransom, by Red Ransom) & dead-heating colt Praecido (One Cool Cat-Felicitous, by Montjeu) & gelding Shootoff (Duelled-Athenri, by Zabeel). Erewhon now has 3 wins & 3 placings (including last start's Gr3 Gloaming Stakes over 1800m at Rosehill on September 18) from 7 starts for $342,730 earnings.
