Perignon Wins Gr2 Light Fingers Stakes
At Randwick in Sydney, Arrowfield Stud's Gr1-winning high profile stallion Snitzel (Redoute's Choice-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a Group success when 3YO filly Perignon (Snitzel-Last Blaze, by Narita Brian) scored by 0.2-length for trainer Gerald Ryan in the $175,000 Gr2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies Kangarilla Joy (Lonhro-Midnight Joy, by Zeditave) & Tempt Me Not (Strategic Maneuver-Ganda, by Encosta de Lago). This was the first stakes victory for Perignon who took her record to 2 wins and 3 placings (including the Gr1 ATC Flight Stakes & Gr2 Furious Stakes) from 9 starts for $311,250 earnings. Perignon was a $350,000 purchase by her trainer Gerald Ryan at the 2014 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Arrowfield Stud.
