Milestone Wins Geelong Classic

Thursday, 21st October 2010

Flagship Arrowfield Stud stallion & current Australian Champion sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a black-type success (& 66th individual stakes-winner) when Sheikh Mohammed's colt Milestone (Redoute's Choice-Cannyanna, by Canny Lad) snatched victory by a short-head in yesterday's $100,000 Listed Keith Sutton Memorial Geelong Classic (2206m) for 3YOs at Geelong. Milestone (ridden by Craig Williams for trainer Lee Freedman) defeated fellow colts Perfect Pecs (Anabaa-Sahara Flight, by Towkay) & Saddle The Stars (Galileo-Broken Promise, by Brief Truce). Milestone (a $600,000 yearling consigned by Baramul Stud & purchased by Darley at the 2009 Magic Millions January Gold Coast Sale) now has 2 wins & a runner-up from 7 starts for $78,575 earnings.
