Purple Wins Gr1 Storm Queen Stakes

Monday, 6th April 2009

Former Woodlands Stud & now Darley stallion Commands (Danehill-Cotehele House, by My Swanee) added a Gr1 triumph when daughter Purple (Commands-Lady Viola, by Zabeel) led all-the-way to score a 0.75-length victory in the $400,000 Gr1 Vinery Stud Storm Queen Stakes (2000m) for 3YO fillies at Rosehill. Purple (ridden by Kerrin McEvoy for trainer Peter Snowden) defeated Gold Water (Choisir-Float, by Devil's Bag) & favourite Gallica (Redoute's Choice-Swing Queen, by Kingmambo). Purple now has 4 wins & 3 placings from 10 for $381,988 earnings. (Click on the link for full race details from Group Race Results at AAP Racing.)
