Hurtle Myrtle Wins Dane Ripper Stakes

Monday, 6th June 2011

Gr3-winning & triple Gr2-placed Kitchwin Hills stallion Dane Shadow (Danehill-Slight Chance, by Centaine) added a group success when 4YO mare Hurtle Myrtle (Dane Shadow-Ravenswood, by Woodman) scored a 0.75-length victory in the $200,000 Gr2 Patinack Farm Dane Ripper Stakes (1400m) for fillies & mares at Eagle Farm. Hurtle Myrtle (ridden by Brenton Avdulla for trainer Matthew Smith) defeated favoured 5YO mare Zero Rock (Danzero-Broc n Roll, by Brocco) & 3YO filly Pontiana (Redoute's Choice-Liberty Rose, by Royal Academy). Hurtle Myrtle (a $55,000 yearling consigned by Kitchwin Hills at the 2008 Inglis Classic Sale in Sydney) now has 3 wins (also including April’s Gr2 Sapphire Stakes over 1200m at Randwick) & 5 placings (in 2010's Gr2 Surround Stakes over 1400m at Warwick Farm, plus 2009's Gr1 Arrowfield Stud Flight Stakes over 1600m at Randwick, Gr2 Furious Stakes over 1400m at Randwick, Gr3 Silver Shadow Stakes over 1200m at Randwick & Inglis Classic (1200m) for 2YOs at Randwick) from 15 starts for $408,075 earnings.
