7th Aust Winner For Rock Of Gibraltar
Freshman sire & Coolmore shuttler Rock Of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) notched his 7th individual Australian winner when 2YO filly Catalan Bay (Rock Of Gibraltar-Kim Angel, by Serheed) scored over 1300m at Sandown in Melbourne for trainer Lee Freedman. Catalan Bay was a $360,000 yearling from the draft of Coolmore Stud at the 2006 Inglis Easter Sale. Her dam Kim Angel won 14 races (including the Gr1 WATC Derby & Gr1 Singapore Gold Cup). The victory saw Rock of Gibraltar draw equal with fellow Coolmore shuttler Johannesburg (Hennessy-Myth, by Ogygian) in the race for Australian 1st season sire honours by individual winners.
