Rich Girl - Strelitzia Stakes (Grade 3) - Gold Circle (p)


Clairwood, Turf, 1100m

6 April 2014

Rich Girl (Rock of Gibraltar x Miss Moguls, by Giant’s Causeway) demolished the Grade 3 Strelitzia Stakes by a dominant 4 lengths Sunday at Clairwood under an armchair ride from Anton Marcus.

Trained by Charles Laird for Markus Jooste, the Summerhill Stud graduate of the 2013 Emperors Palace Ready To Run Sale has won and finished second on her only two previous starts.

A three-quarter sister-in-blood to stakes-placed Tariks, she is the first winner for Miss Moguls, a half-sister by Giant’s Causeway to stakes-placed Wyndam Easy and Twin Peaks from the family of Magic Millions winner Catnipped.

This is also the family of Golden Slipper winner Overreach and Blue Diamond winner Reward For Effort.

Rich Girl is the 91st stakes-winner worldwide for Rock of Gibraltar and comes from his last Australian bred crop of foals.
