Viridine Wins Listed Heritage Stakes

Monday, 18th September 2017

At Royal Randwick in Sydney, Darley's Gr1-winning shuttler Poet's Voice (Dubawi-Bright Tiara, by Chief's Crown) added a black-type success when exciting 3YO Godolphin colt Viridine (Poet's Voice-Patina, by Anabaa) opened his stakes account when saluting in the $125,000 Listed Heritage Stakes (1100m) for 3YOs, defeating Single Bullet & Albumin. Viridine extended his unbeaten record to 3 wins from 3 starts for $218,000 in earnings. A homebred for Darley, Viridine is a direct descendent of Flight Stakes, Wakeful Stakes & Surround Stakes-winning mare La Caissiere (Luskin Star), dam of Gr1 Thousand Guineas & Gr1 Flight Stakes winner Dashing Eagle.
