Artie Schiller Adds US Black-Type
In the US, Independent Stallions Victoria shuttler Artie Schiller (El Prado-Hidden Light, by Majestic Light) added a black-type success (3rd individual stakes-winner) when his colt Mr Commons (Artie Schiller-Joustabout, by Apalachee) scored a 1.5-lengths victory in the US$112,000 Listed Oceanside Stakes (8 furlongs on turf) for 3YOs at Del Mar in California. Mr Commons (ridden by Mike Smith for trainer John Shirreffs) defeated the geldings Burns (Unusual Heat-Little Hottie, by Afternoon Deelites) & Extensive (Purge-Zambia, by Theatrical). Mr Commons (a US$70,000 yearling at the 2009 Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July Sale) now has 3 wins & a placing (in April’s Gr1 Santa Anita Derby over 9 furlongs) from 6 starts for US$253,660 earnings.
