Shablec Wins Matrice Stakes

Tuesday, 14th March 2006

Kambula Stud stallion Blevic (Scenic-Blooms, by Biscay) added a black-type success when favoured 5YO gelding Shablec (Blevic-Shabet, by Amen Brother) came from well back on the turn to score a half-length victory in yesterday's $50,000 Listed Matrice Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville. Shablec (ridden by Paul Gatt for trainer Richard Jolly) defeated 3YO colt Gallant Guru (Montjeu-Proud Halo, by Don't Say Halo) & fellow 5YO gelding Grace And Power (Baryshnikov-Almighty Sister, by Amen Brother). Shablec (a $47,500 yearling at the 2002 Magic Millions Adelaide Sale) spent 8 months away from the track with injury last year; he subsequently notched 2 successive runner-ups in his return races in February & early March (in last week's Gr3 Irwin Stakes over 1100m) & now boasts 5 wins & 5 placings in 17 starts for $266,890 prize-money.
