Black-Type Results: Scone Carnival

Group 3 Dark Jewel Classic

Race Summary:

An accomplished mare in the northern hemisphere, Con Te Partiro (USA) (Scat Daddy {USA}) was making her Australian stakes debut at Scone.

The mare raced up three wide just behind the leaders with Sam Clipperton aboard and bided her time. Clipperton asked her to run on at the 400 metre mark but as she started her run she was trapped between two horses. She looked as though she may have packed it in when she quit advancing on the leaders but that was quickly put to rest.

She regrouped with 100 metres left and re-rallied to make a late run in the final 50 metre to win by a little under a quarter length. The Godolphin pair of Savatiano (Street Cry {Ire}) and Organza (Street Cry {Ire}) was the only two within a length of her, finishing second and third.

Pedigree Notes:

Street Cry earned a trifecta in the race with his daughter producing the winner and the next two in by the late sire himself. The first winner from four runners in the country for her sire, Con Te Partiro was a $575,000 purchase at last year’s Fasig-Tipton November Sale.

The mare is one of two stakes winners from her Group 1 placed dam Temple Street (Street Cry {Ire}), who is also the dam of Listed winning Donworth (USA) (Tiznow {USA}). There are five stakes winners under Con Te Partiro’s first three dams but the most stakes success comes thanks to fourth dam Northern Meteor (USA) (Northern Dancer {CAN}), who was a Listed winner.

She is the dam of Group 1 winners A Phenomenon (USA) (Tentam {USA}) and Seattle Meteor (USA) (Seattle Slew {USA}) with 36 stakes winners under her name. Those include Group 1 winners Pleasant Stage (USA) (Pleasant Colony {USA}) and Changeintheweather (USA) (Gone West {USA}).

Temple Street has produced four winners from four to race with her unraced 2-year-old colt Tiz Bob Too (USA) (Tiznow) sold at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale for $475,000 last year.

Listed Denise's Joy S.

Race Summary:

It isn’t often you see a horse from the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott stable go off as a longshot but that was the case with Ready To Prophet (Smart Missile), who already had a fourth in a Group 2 to her name.

Ready To Prophet broke out first but was more than willing to let much of the field take over the lead soon after, settling midpack in about sixth place under Adam Hyeronimus. She closed the margin she had given up early on as they swung into the straight and collared the leaders at the 200 metre mark

There was only one horse left to fight for the lead from there and Madam Rouge (Zoustar) wasn’t going to bow down easily with the fillies battling all the way to the line. It came down to the final strides of the race with Ready To Prophet just getting a nose advantage on Madam Rouge.

Prophet’s Thumb (I Am Invincible) was the only one to get within four lengths of the winners when finishing third. Race favourite Pretty In Pink (Sebring) finished fifth.

Pedigree Notes:

Ready To Prophet is one of four winners from Ready To Live (USA) (More Than Ready {USA}), who is a Listed stakes winner in the United States.

Ready To Live is a half-sister to the dam of Group 1 winner Itsmyluckyday (USA) (Lawyer Ron {USA}) and from the family of Group 1 winners Vicar (Wild Again {USA}) and Astronomer Royal (Danzig {USA}).

The 16-year-old mare has a 2-year-old Epaulette filly named Maya Miracle in training with Joe Cleary, a weanling by Wandjina, and she was served by Rich Enuff in 2018.

Listed Luskin Star S.

Race Summary:

It was another weekend with a stakes winner for Godolphin when Trekking (Street Cry {IRE}) won his second straight stakes for James Cummings.

Deploy (Fastnet Rock) went straight for the lead and set a blistering pace up front as the field spread out over more than 15 lengths with Trekking lengths off Deploy when running in midpack with the leader being pushed by Fuel (Not a Single Doubt). It looked like there was no catching Deploy with 300 metres left to go but the gelding started to tire right at the time Trekking showed a speedy turn of foot to chase down the leader.

Trekking caught Deploy in the last 75 meets with Brave Song (Your Song) right behind him to relegate the pacesetter to third. It was an impressive run from Deploy to only be caught in the final 100 metres with Fuel, who had run with him early on, finishing 10th after fading from the fast pace.

Pedigree Notes:

Trekking is from Redoute’s Choice mare Outdoor, who won three of her starts and is one of three foals from 2006 Australia Champion 3-Year-Old Filly Serenade Rose (Stravinsky {USA}). Serenade Rose produced two stakes placed horses from those three foals with Minnesinger (Lonhro) the best as a Group 2 placed runner.

Serenade Rose’s own dam was also accomplished in the shed outside of producing her champion daughter with two other stakes placed runners and two dams of stakes placed runners. This is also the family of Hong Kong champion Viva Pataca (GB) (Marju {Ire}) and Italian champion Voila Ici (Ire) (Daylmai {Ire}) in addition to U.S. Group 1 winner Laughing (Ire) (Dansili {GB)).

Trekking was the first foal from his dam with the mare having an unraced Medaglia d’Oro (USA) gelding named Paraglide, a 2-year-old named Jetski (Lonhro) who is placed in one of his three career starts, and a 2018 filly by Street Boss (USA). She was bred to Ribchester (Ire) in 2018.

Listed Woodlands S.

Race Summary:

The favourite Libertini (I Am Invincible) made short work of her rivals and was untouched to win by two lengths.

She jumped well to sit outside the leader and when rider Tommy Berry let her go 250 metres from home she put the issue beyond doubt.

Regimental Band (I Am Invincible) made up ground to finish runner-up, her second in as many appearances, with Akari (Snitzel) taking third.

Pedigree Notes:

Libertini is a daughter of Aloha (Encosta de Lago), an outstanding mare who won eight races, including the G1 Coolmore Classic.

She is out of the stakes winner Tennessee Midnight (Danehill {USA}), who is a half-sister to the dual Group 1 winner Malaguerra (Magnus).

The pedigree page also features the G1 ATC Champagne S. winner Seabrook (NZ) (Hinchinbrook).

Listed 3YO Guineas

Race Summary:

Wild Planet (Animal Kingdom {USA}) was first out of the barrier in the first race of the day at Scone and never looked back.

Bare Naked Lady raced on his hip throughout the run but it didn’t seem to faze the gelding as he galloped comfortably on the lead under Tommy Berry. Bare Naked Lady drew even with him as the field came around the turn with 450 metres to go and Berry had to get after his mount as two others also charged for the lead in the final 300 metres.

Wild Planet looked as if he was tiring but found a second wind to pull away from those fighting behind him with race favourite Military Zone (Epaulette) putting in a gallant run to make up ground and finish second by less than a length with Dundeel (NZ) gelding Total Power just a length and a half back from the winner in third.

Pedigree Notes:

A $280,000 Inglis Easter purchase by Hawkes Racing and Andrew Williams Bloodstock, Wild Planet is from Redoute’s Choice mare Salutations, who has two winners from four to race.

She is from Group 2 winner Toast of the Coast (Rory’s Jester), who is also the granddam of Listed placed Pearl Congenial (Gio Ponti {USA}). Toast of the Coast’s Group 2 winning dam Solo Show (NZ) (Dahar {USA}) is from Solo Performance (Without Fear (Fr)), the dam of two stakes horses and granddam of one other.

Salutations is also the dam of Listed placed 2-year-old Super Seth (Dundeel {NZ}) and has a yearling sister to that colt who sold for $70,000 at Magic Millions this year. The mare was again served by the stallion in 2018 on an 18 October cover.

Listed Ortensia S.

Race Summary:

Viridine (Poet’s Voice {GB}) by playing a big part in another winning weekend for Godolphin.

Viridine was in the back half of the field with only four horses beat as they turned into the straight. He had a lot of work to do to win the race from his position but it proved to be no problem as he swung out to the middle of the track, the widest of any horse in the field.

A large group of horses fighting for the lead worked in the gelding’s favour as he passed them in one swoop to take over the lead in the final 100 metres. Jason Collett didn’t have to do anything once his mount got to the lead, easing down in the last metres to let Victorem (I Am invincible) get within a length of him.

Guard Of Honour (Northern Meteor) wrapped up a third place finish, over a length in front of the fourth place horse.

Pedigree Notes:

Viridine is the second runner for Patina (Anabaa {USA}), who is a half-sister to the dam of Osborne Bulls (Street Cry {Ire}), who finished second in the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 earlier in the day.

Patina’s dam Saddler’s Silk (Barathea) is Group 1 placed and a full sister to Listed winner and Group 1 placed Barawin with four horses under Patina’s first two dams – including her own daughter – Group 1 placed without winning at the level.

Patina has three winners from four to race with her 2-year-old Epaulette filly St Edward’s Crown placed in her only start. The mare had a colt by Frosted (USA) last year and was served by Shooting To Win in 2018.
