Dariana Wins Gr1 Queensland Derby

Monday, 14th June 2010

Flagship Arrowfield Stud stallion & former Australian Champion Sire Redoute's Choice (Danehill-Shantha's Choice, by Canny Lad) added a Gr1 triumph (& 18th individual Gr1-winner) when daughter Dariana (Redoute's Choice-Beldarian, by Last Tycoon) blitzed her male rivals by 4.5-lengths in the $500,000 Gr1 Queensland Derby (2400m) for 3YOs at Eagle Farm. Dariana (ridden by Michael Rodd for trainer Bart Cummings, who notched his 260th Gr1 win) defeated favoured gelding Kutchinsky (Anabaa-My First Zabeel, by Zabeel) & fellow filly Miss Keepsake (Keeper-Jacilo, by Entrepreneur). Dariana (a $300,000 yearling at the 2008 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) now has 3 wins (also including April's Gr3 Frank Packer Plate over 2000m at Randwick) & 2 placings (including May's Gr3 Hidden Dragon The Roses over 2020m at Doomben) from 9 starts for $451,165 earnings.
