Shinko Forest Adds UK Gr3

Monday, 27th June 2011

Former Glenlogan Park shuttler Shinko Forest (Green Desert-Park Express, by Ahonoora) added a UK group success when Irish-bred 7YO gelding Genki (Shinko Forest-Emma's Star, by Darshaan) scored by a head in the £50,000 (A$77,000) Gr3 Chipchase Stakes (6 furlongs) at Newcastle. Genki (ridden by George Baker for trainer Roger Charlton) defeated US-bred 5YO entire Doncaster Rover (War Chant-Rebridled Dreams, by Unbridled's Song) & fellow 7YO gelding Regal Parade (Pivotal-Model Queen, by Kingmambo). Genki was a 55,000 guineas (A$88,000) yearling at the 2005 Tattersalls October Sale. He took his overall record to 8 wins (also including April’s Listed Abernant Stakes over 6 furlongs at Newmarket) & 8 placings (including 2010's Gr1 Haydock Sprint Cup over 6 furlongs at Haydock Park & Gr3 Bengough Stakes over 6 furlongs at Ascot, plus 2009's Irish Listed Testimonial Stakes over 6 furlongs at The Curragh) from 29 starts for £262,198 (A$401,000) earnings.
