At the Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Coolmore's former dual Champion Australian Sire Encosta De Lago (Fairy King-Shoal Creek, by Star Way) added a black-type success when 7YO gelding Riva De Lago (Encosta de Lago-Ashenti, by Ashkalani) scored a surprise 1.3-length win at odds of 26-1 for trainer Robert Heathcote in the $175,000 Listed Glasshouse Handicap (1300m) for 3YO+, over 3YO colt Time For War (Snitzel-Lady Zabelia, by Zabeel) & 5YO gelding Pillar Of Creation (God's Own-Cosmic Dust, by Hurricane Sky). Riva De Lago took his record to 8 wins (including the Gr2 Sebring Sprint) and 9 placings (including the Gr2 Ajax Stakes, Gr3 Liverpool City Cup & Listed Luskin Star Stakes at Scone) from 41 starts for $659.080 earnings.
