Artlee Wins Listed Luskin Star Stakes

Monday, 18th May 2015

At Scone in the NSW Hunter Valley, former Gr1-winning & 4-times Gr1-placed shuttler & champion 3YO miler Excellent Art (Pivotal-Obsessive, by Seeking The Gold) added a black-type success when 4YO gelding Artlee (Excellent Art-Danelee Dancer, by Danehill Dancer) scored by 1-length for trainer Todd Willan in the $140,000 Listed Luskin Star Stakes (1300m) for 3YO+, over fellow 4YO gelding Oxford Poet (Dylan Thomas-Oxford Princess, by Magic Ring) & 5YO mare Slots (Casino Prince-Serein, by Snippets). This was the first stakes victory for Artlee who was coming off an impressive victory in the Country Championship Final at Randwick in early April. Artlee took his record to 6 wins and 1 placing from 9 starts for $390,545 earnings. "I am still shaking and I am a bit weak at the knees, but it is very exciting," a delighted Todd Willan said. "He is just a good honest horse and next prep we will find a nice race for him I think."
