Big day out on Friday for STATUE OF LIBERTY progeny with four winners: two in England, one in France and one on the Sunshine Coast.
Stewart Mackinnon’s 4YO mare Ragazza Veloce (from the Danehill Dancer mare Winning Team) notched up her second win (and sixth cheque) from nine outings when successful over the 1000m at the Sunshine Coast track, while north of the equator, exciting 2YO What About You (from the Dansili mare Why Now) made all the running and demolished his opposition to score by five panels at Wolverhampton.
Another of Statue of Liberty’s 2YOs in Podgies Boy wasn’t quite as dominant when winning his assignment at Lingfield, but has now won his past two outings and appears to have a smart future. Podgies Boy is out of the Lake Coniston mare Lake Victoria.
Last, but certainly not least, was the French 3YO filly, Serva Padrona who found plenty on the line to win at Bordeaux le Bouscat. Serva Padrona is out of the Persian Bold mare Semiramide (who is named after the opera by Rossini).
