Tawteen Wins Listed Crockett Stakes
At Moonee Valley in Melbourne, Gr1 Golden Slipper-winning Widden Stud stallion & former Australian Champion 1st-Season Sire Stratum (Redoutes Choice-Bourgeois, by Luskin Star) added a black-type success when 3YO filly Tawteen (Stratum-Sprung, by Grand Slam) scored by 3.5-lengths for trainers David Hayes and Tom Dabernig in the $120,000 Listed Crockett Stakes (1200m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies More Radiant (More Than Ready-Ravishing Choice, by Redoute's Choice) & London Lolly (Charge Forward-Lovely Jubly, by Lion Hunter). This was the first stakes victory for Tawteen who took her record to 4 wins and 2 placings (including the Gr3 Champagne Stakes & Gr3 Thoroughbred Club Stakes) from 7 starts for $133,501 earnings. Tawteen was purchased for $260,000 by Shadwell Australia at the 2013 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale from the draft of Widden Stud.
