Black Ink Wins The Shorts

Tuesday, 4th October 2005

Ill-fated Arrowfield Stud sire Snippets (Lunchtime-Easy Date, by Grand Chaudiere) also added a group success when 5YO gelding Black Ink (Snippets-Empress Regina, by Luskin Star) ran a race record (1min 3.4sec) to win the $175,000 Gr3 The Shorts (1100m) by 2-lengths at Randwick. Black Ink (ridden by Michael Cahill for trainer Les Kelly) defeated 8YO gelding Mustard (Vettori-Altezza, by Rigoletto) & 4YO mare Fumble (Snippets-Rarely Caught, by Danzatore). Black Ink (a $50,000 yearling at the 2002 Inglis Sires Produce Sale) now has 8 wins (including 3 of his last 4 runs) & 5 placings in 16 starts for $269,800 prize-money.
