Johannesburg Adds US Black-Type
Coolmore shuttler Johannesburg (Hennessy-Myth, by Ogygian) added a US black-type success when his son Eaton's Gift (Johannesburg-Kit's Girl, by Carson City) scored a 1.5-lengths victory in the US$108,000 Listed Matt Winn Stakes (6 furlongs) for 3YO at Churchill Downs in Kentucky. Eaton's Gift (ridden by Elvis Trujillo for trainer Dale Romans) defeated Devereux (Forestry-Born Perfect, by Mr Prospector) & Ling Ling Qi (Yonaguska-Holy Love, by Holy Bull). Already this season Kentucky-bred Eaton's Gift won the US Gr2 Swale Stakes (8.5 furlongs) at Gulfstream Park in February & then finished 3rd in April's Listed Lafayette Stakes (7 furlongs on the all-weather track) at Keeneland.
