Wild Queen Wins Belle Of Turf

Breeding and Racing - 18 October 2005

Former Vinery Stud shuttler Loup Sauvage (Riverman-Louveterie, by Nureyev) added a black-type victory when consistent 5YO mare Wild Queen (Loup Sauvage-Crowning Jewel, by Bletchingly) won yesterday’s $100,000 Listed Belle Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) at Gosford. Wild Queen (ridden by Len Beasley for trainer Gai Waterhouse) defeated 4YO mares Johan’s Toy (Johan Cruyff-Extra Bubbly, by Bellotto) & Fairy’s Kiss (Stravinsky-Crimson). Wild Queen (a $260,000 yearling at the 2002 Inglis Easter Sale) now has 7 wins (also including the Listed Angst Quality Stakes over 1400m at Randwick last start on October 1) & 6 placings in 16 starts for $340,450 prize-money. (Oct 17)

NOTE: Wild Queen (Loup Sauvage) is from Crowning Jewel (Bletchingly) a granddaughter of the hugely influential mare Joy and Fun, a daughter of the great Denise’s’ Joy herself.
