Chabaud Wins Gr3 SA Fillies Classic
At Morphettville racecourse in Adelaide, 5-time Gr1-winning Coolmore shuttler & former US Champion 2YO & 3YO Lookin At Lucky (Smart Strike-Private Feeling, by Belong to Me) added a Group success when 3YO filly Chabaud (Lookin at Lucky-Rockadubai, by Fastnet Rock) scored by 1.6-lengths for trainer Robert Smerdon in the $120,000 Gr3 SA Fillies Classic (2500m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies Ashlee Marie (Face Value-Snow Angel, by Zabeel) & High Lago (High Chaparral-De Lago Lass, by Encosta de Lago). Chabaud, who hails for the family of three-time Gr1 winner Sea Siren and Gr1 Karrakatta Plate winner Hold That Smile, improved her record to 4 wins (including the Listed Tasmanian Oaks) and 4 placings from 13 starts for $213,145 earnings. Owned by the estate of the late Philip Sly, Chabaud was a $170,000 purchase by Matchem Racing at the 2014 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale from the draft of Widden Stud.
