Dendee Wins Listed Sheila Gwynne Classic

Monday, 10th April 2017

At Ascot racecourse in Perth, Western Australia, Darley's Gr1 Golden Rose Stakes-winning stallion Denman (Lonhro-Peach, by Vain) added a black-type success when 5YO mare Dendee (Denman-Divine Deputy, by French Deputy) scored by 1 length for trainer Daniel Morton in the $100,000 Listed Sheila Gwynne Classic (1400m) for 3YO+ fillies & mares, over 4YO mare Let It Slip (Not a Single Doubt-Oopsy Doopsy, by General Nediym) & fellow 5YO mare Fancy Fox (Redoutable-Minimoon, by El Moxie). This was a well-deserved maiden stakes victory for the consistent Dendee who boosted her record to 9 wins and 6 placings from 27 starts for $258,375 earnings. Dendee was passed in when failing to reach her reserve at the 2013 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale.
