Ice Chariot Wins Gr1 Queensland Derby
Deceased Eureka Stud stallion Semipalatinsk (Nodouble-School Board, by Reverse) added a Gr1 triumph when gelded son Ice Chariot (Semipalatinsk-Snow Chariot, by Chariot) notched a 1.25-lengths victory in the $500,000 Gr1 Queensland Derby (2400m) for 3YOs at Eagle Farm. Ice Chariot (ridden by Glenn Lynch for trainer Ron Maund) defeated fellow geldings Cape Breton (Peintre Celebre-Lihir, by Grosvenor) & Loanhead (I Conquer-Just Tuppence, by Nassipour). Ice Chariot (a $37,500 yearling at the Brisbane Bonus Sale) now has 6 wins (also including the Gr3 Grand Prix Stakes over 2100m last start on June 3) & a runner-up (in the Gr3 Doomben Classic over 1615m on May 13) from 10 starts for $630,600 earnings.
