Das Machen Wins Matrice Stakes

Monday, 7th March 2011

Arrowfield Stud stallion & former Australian Champion Sire Flying Spur (Danehill-Rolls, by Mr Prospector) added a black-type success (& 80th individual stakes-winner) when equal-favoured 5YO mare Das Machen (Flying Spur-Lili Marlene, by Kaaptive Edition) scored a front-running 2.25-lengths victory in the $80,000 Listed Matrice Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville. Das Machen (ridden by Dale Smith for trainer Mick Price) defeated equal-favoured 8YO gelding Time Matters (Gilded Time-Maat, by Sarab) & 5YO mare A Wee Dram (Half Hennessy-Eminently, by Spectrum). Das Machen (a $60,000 yearling consigned by Gervase Park at the 2007 Magic Millions Perth Sale) took her record to 7 wins & 5 placings (including last month's Gr3 Hyderabad Race Club Stakes over 1200m at Caulfield) from 17 starts for $240,410 earnings.
