Carrara Wins Doomben Slipper

Monday, 25th May 2009

Blue Gum Farm's 5-time Gr1-winning stallion & 1st-crop sire Elvstroem (Danehill-Circles Of Gold, by Marscay) notched his 1st stakes-winner when juvenile colt Carrara (Elvstroem-Crystal Sprite, by Hurricane Sky) scored a half-length victory in the $100,000 Listed Doomben Slipper (1350m) for 2YOs at Doomben. Carrara (ridden by Nash Rawiller for trainer Tony Vasil) defeated fellow colt Choistar (Choisir-Sveldte, by Star Watch) & the gelding Taffy (Ihtiram-Heaven's Reply, by Staroka). Carrara (a $200,000 yearling consigned by Little Plains Stud at the 2008 Inglis Premier Sale in Melbourne) now has 2 wins & a placing (in last start's Listed Blue Sapphire Stakes over 1200m at Caulfield on May 2) from 3 starts for $88,225 earnings.
