I Am Excited Wins Listed Darby Munro Stakes

Monday, 26th March 2018

At Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, Arrowfield Stud's incumbent Champion Australian Sire Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a black-type success when 3YO Australian-bred filly I Am Excited (Snitzel-Lady Beckworth, by General Nediym) kept her unbeaten record intact for this campaign with a determined win in the $125,000 Listed Darby Munro Stakes (1200m) for 3YOs, defeating the Godolphin's highly promising Isaurian & Za Zi Ba. This was the second stakes victory for I Am Excited who improved her record to 4 wins (including the Listed Fireball Stakes) and 3 placings (including the Gr2 ATC Furious Stakes & Gr3 VRC Kennedy Plate) from 10 starts for $349,625 in earnings. I Am Excited is a half-sister to multiple stakes winning mare Flippant (Hinchinbrook) out of the well related Lady Beckworth (General Nediym-Nanshan). Lady Beckworth, in turn, is a half-sister to Regard (Zabeel-Nanshan), dam of superstar mare Atlantic Jewel (Fastnet Rock) and Gr1 Thousand Guineas winner Commanding Jewel (Commands).
