Swift Alliance Wins HKJC Stakes

Monday, 7th September 2009

Gr1-winning NZ Haunui Farm sire Don Eduardo (Zabeel-Diamond Lover, by Sticks And Stones) added a group success when favoured 4YO entire Swift Alliance (Don Eduardo-Visual Emotion, by Silver Deputy) made it 4 successive wins since returning from a 33-weeks spell with a half-length victory in the $200,000 Gr3 Hong Kong Jockey Club Stakes (1200m) for 4YOs & up at Flemington. Swift Alliance (ridden by Blake Shinn for trainer Gai Waterhouse) defeated 6YO gelding Gold Salute (Testa Rossa-Gold Sarah, by Catrail) & 5YO gelding Chasm (Umatilla-Arabian Poppi, by Al Hareb). Ultra-consistent Swift Alliance now has 6 wins (also including last start's Listed Show County Quality over 1200m at Randwick on August 22) & a runner-up from 7 starts for $338,350 earnings.
