Azkadellia Wins Gr3 Mannerism Stakes
At Caulfield in Melbourne, deceased Gr1-winning stallion Shinko King (Fairy King-Rose Of Jericho, by Alleged) added a group success when much touted 4YO mare Azkadellia (Shinko King-Raving, by Centaine) scored by 0.2-lengths for trainer Ciaron Maher in the $150,000 Gr3 Mannerism Stakes (1400m) for mares 4YO+, over the 5YO mares Tuscan Sling (Dunhill Dancer-Firenze, by Kenny's Best Pal) & Miss Rose de Lago (Encosta de Lago-Crimson Dawn, by Fasliyev). Having threatened to break her stakes race duck for a long time, Azkadellia finally put it together with a withering run down the centre of the course to take her record to 5 wins & 5 placings (including the Gr1 Myer Classic, Gr3 Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes & Gr3 G1x.com.au Stakes) for $264,235 earnings.
