Seventh Plain Wins Gr1 Gold Medallion Stakes
At Scottsville in South Africa, 2YO colt Seventh Plain registered the first top-flight victory of his career when scoring by 2.5-lengths for trainer Dennis Drier in the Gr1 Gold Medallion Stakes (1200m) for 2YOs, over fellow colts Redcarpet Captain (Captain Al-Divine, by Kabool) & Prospect Strike (Toreador-Prospect Fever, by Mr. Prospector). The promising Seventh Plain took his record to 3 wins (including the Gr3 Godolphin Barb Stakes) and 1 placing from 4 starts. Interestingly, Seventh Plain is by Australian-bred stallion Seventh Rock (Rock Of Gibraltar–Ruby Clipper by Rubiton) who stands at Klawervlei Stud in South Africa. Bred by Strawberry Hill Stud, Seventh Rock is out of Gr1 Allan Robertson Championship winner Ruby Clipper who, in turn, is out of Gr1 Australasian Oaks winner Miss Clipper.
