Tromso Wins Listed Ladies Day Cup
At Hawkesbury, former Australian Champion Sire & 11-time Gr1-winning Darley World Champion Miler Lonhro (Octagonal-Shadea, by Straight Strike) added a black-type success when 7YO gelding Tromso (Lonhro-Feelers, by Quest for Fame) scored by 0.1-length for trainer Chris Waller in the $100,000 Listed Ladies Day Cup (1400m) for 3YO+, over 4YO gelding Ninth Legion (Fastnet Rock-Xaar's Jewel, by Xaar) & 5YO gelding Soledad (Commands-Del Mar, by Zabeel). This was Tromso's first stakes victory and took his record to 6 wins & 12 placings (including the Listed BRC Daybreak Lover Stakes) from 39 starts for $496,750 earnings. Consigned by Woodlands Stud, Tromso was passed-in for $110,000 at the 2008 Inglis Sydney Easter Yearling Sale.
