Flippant Wins Listed Woodlands Stakes
At Scone in the NSW Hunter Valley, Yarraman Park's Gr3-winning & 4-time Gr1-placed stallion Hinchinbrook (Fastnet Rock-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) celebrated his first stakes winner when 2YO filly Flippant (Hinchinbrook-Lady Beckworth, by General Nediym) scored an easy 2.3-length win for trainers Peter & Paul Snowden in the $140,000 Listed Woodlands Stakes (1100m) for 2YO fillies, over fellow fillies Harlem River (Fastnet Rock-Harlem Heat, by Xaar) & Miss Antaeus (I Am Invincible-Crestfallen, by Rivotious). Flippant, who was purchased for $220,000 by McKeever Bloodstock at the 2014 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Bell River Thoroughbreds, took her record to 2 wins and 1 placing from 4 starts for $108,201 earnings. Flippant is out of the well related General Nediym mare Lady Beckworth, who is a half-sister to superstar mare Atlantic Jewel (Fastnet Rock) and Gr1 Thousand Guineas winner Commanding Jewel (Commands).
