Monday, 4th May 2009

Former Arrowfield Stud shuttler & world champion sprinter Orientate (Mt Livermore-Dream Team, by Cox's Ridge) added a black-type success when favoured daughter Marveen (Orientate-Shiny, by Forest Glow) made it 3 successive wins with victory by a neck in the $125,000 Listed Gold Coast Bracelet (1800m) for 3YO fillies at the Gold Coast. Marveen (ridden by Blake Shinn for trainer Robert Smerdon) defeated La Etoile (Thorn Park-Desert Wine, by Deputy Governor) & Miss Darcey (Hussonet-Miss Bussell, by Danzero). Marveen (who is catalogued for auction at June's Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale on the Gold Coast) now has 6 wins (also including 2008's Listed Lexus Stakes over 1400m at Flemington & 2007's Listed Merson Cooper Stakes over 1000m at Sandown) & 4 runners-up (including 2008's Gr2 Betfair Sandown Guineas over 1600m & Listed Blue Diamond Preview Stakes over 1000m at Caulfield, plus 2007's Listed Herald-Sun Sprint over 1000m at Flemington) from 17 starts for $581,645 earnings.
