Hennessy Adds US Gr2

Monday, 18th July 2011

Deceased Gr1-winning former shuttler Hennessy (Storm Cat-Island Kitty, by Hawaii) added US graded-stakes success when 5YO mare Irish Gypsy (Hennessy-Rayelle, by Relaunch) notched her 3rd successive stakes win with victory by a nose in the US$200,000 Gr2 A Gleam Handicap (7 furlongs on all-weather) for fillies & mares at Hollywood Park. Irish Gypsy (ridden by Martin Garcia for trainer Bob Baffert) defeated fellow 5YO mare Ultra Blend (Richly Blended-Ankha, by Desert Classic) & 4YO mare Tanda (Sweetsouthernsaint-Doc's Stormy Girl, by Dr Caton). Irish Gypsy (a US$120,000 yearling at the 2007 Keeneland September Sale) took her record to 6 wins (also including June’s Listed Desert Stormer Handicap over 6 furlongs at Hollywood Park & May’s Listed Valid Expectations Stakes over 6 furlongs at Lone Star Park) & 5 placings (including May’s Listed Time To Leave Stakes over 5 furlongs at Hollywood Park & 2010’s Listed California State Fair Sprint Stakes over 6 furlongs at Sacramento) from 14 starts for US$359,420 earnings.
