Monday, 7th March 2011

Multiple Gr1-winning Coolmore shuttler & former star Australian sprinter Choisir (Danehill Dancer-Great Selection, by Lunchtime) added a juvenile group success (& 25th individual stakes-winner) when his colt Rockshaft (Choisir-Bella Jewel, by Rory's Jester) scored by a long-neck in the $115,000 Gr3 Marsh Breeders' Stakes (1200m) for 2YOs at Morphettville. Rockshaft (ridden by Jason Maskiell for trainer Robert Smerdon) defeated fellow colts Redangelo (Testa Rossa-Angel Of The South, by Agnes World) & favourite Rescue Mission (Darci Brahma-First Of May, by Halling). Rockshaft now has 2 wins from 3 starts for $86,775 earnings. (Click on the link for full race details from Group Race Results at AAP Racing.)
