Ishiguru Adds UK Gr2

Wednesday, 21st June 2006

NZ Chequers Stud's 1st season sire Ishiguru (Danzig-Strategic Manuever, by Cryptoclearance) added a juvenile group success overnight when the colt Hellvelyn (Ishiguru-Cumbrian Melody, by Petong) scored a 0.75-lengths victory in the £80,000 (A$192,000) Gr2 Coventry Stakes (6 furlongs) for 2YOs at Royal Ascot. Hellvelyn (ridden by Ted Durcan for trainer Bryan Smart) defeated Major Cadeaux (Cadeaux Genereux-Maine Lobster, by Woodman) & Tariq (Kyllachy-Tatora, by Selkirk). Hellvelyn was purchased for 100,000 guineas (A$260,000) at the Doncaster St Leger Sales by trainer Smart on behalf of Sheikh Rashid Bin Mohammed. His sire Ishiguru was Danzig's highest-priced yearling sold in 1999 when purchased by Demi O'Byrne for US$1.15 million at the Keeneland July sale; he was subsequently a Gr3 winner in the northern hemisphere.
