Metro Miss Wins Matchmaker Stakes

Monday, 6th April 2009

Former WA Oakland Park shuttler Xaar (Zafonic-Monroe, by Sir Ivor) added black-type success when 5YO mare Metro Miss (Xaar-City Living, by Citidancer) scored by a short-head in the $75,000 Listed Matchmaker Stakes (1400m) for fillies & mares at Ascot. Metro Miss (ridden by Daniel Staeck for trainer Shane Edwards) defeated 6YO mare Russian Playmate (Dr Johnson-Rippling Echo, by Alquoz) & favoured 3YO filly Just Marika (Grandera-Bloomy, by Dehere). Metro Miss now has 7 wins & 4 placings (including 2007's Listed Jungle Mist Classic over 1200m at Ascot) from 31 starts for $218,790 earnings.
