Aust-Bred Gibraltar Son Wins Singapore Gr3
In Singapore, European Horse-Of-The-Year & 7-time Gr1-winning former shuttler Rock Of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) added a group success when Australian-bred 4YO entire Zac Influence (Rock Of Gibraltar-Kidman, by Quest For Fame) led in an Australian-bred trifecta with a 1-length victory in the S$175,000 (A$140,000) Gr3 Proinn Construct Stakes (1700m) at Kranji. Zac Influence (ridden by Rusof Shafiq for Australian trainer Cliff Brown) defeated fellow Australian-breds 5YO gelding Flying Fulton (Flying Spur-Fulton, by Zabeel) & 9YO gelding Parfumier (Belong To Me-Patou, by Covetous). Zac Influence (a $60,000 yearling at the 2009 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) now has 4 wins & 5 placings (including April’s Gr2 3YO Classic over 1400m at Kranji) from 13 starts for S$324,967 (A$260,000) earnings.
