King's Theatre Adds Swedish Black-Type
Also in Sweden, former Glenlogan Park shuttler King's Theatre (Sadler's Wells-Regal Beauty, by Princely Native) added a black-type success when Irish-bred 6YO gelding Highway (King's Theatre-Havinia, by Habitat) scored a 1-length victory in the Listed Nickes Minneslopning (1600m) at Taby (after finishing runner-up in this same race last year). Highway (ridden by Manuel Martinez for trainer Francisco Castro) defeated Argentine-bred fellow 6YO gelding Snow Runner (Lode-Snow Pac, by Snow Satyr) & Irish-bred 4YO gelding Prince Hamlet (Fantastic Light-Hamsaat Hi Haat, by Hennessy). Highway was an €18,000 (A$31,000) yearling at the 2004 Tattersalls Ireland Sale. Overall he now has 8 wins (also including 2006's SFK Jubileumslopning over 2400m at Jagersro) & 8 placings (including May's Listed Pramms Memorial over 1730 at Jagersro, plus both 2008's Listed Songline Classic over 2000m at Taby & Listed Nickes Minneslopning over 1600m at Taby) from 30 starts.
