Cressfield soars at Eagle Farm
30 May 2017
Cressfield bred and owned race horses soared at Eagle Farm last Saturday, 27th May when 3 runners took out two Group 3 placings and a Group1 win.
The Chairman (High Chaparral x Dezign) is proving to be a very honest stayer, when he dug deep to hang on to a 3rd place after a tough front running 2200m in the Gr3. Premiers Cup. This follows his 2nd place in the Group 3 Chairmans Stakes a fortnight earlier at Doomben.
Race 6, the Glenlogan Stakes was contested by our ever consistent mare Egyptian Symbol who made good ground on the eventual winner Eckstein on the Heavy 8 track to again be bridesmaid at Group level.
The best however was yet to come when the Scone hero, Clearly Innocent made the huge step from Listed level to Group 1 racing and showed he was well and truly up to the task taking out the Darley Kingsford Smith by 3 lengths to the second placed Jungle Edge and beating the rest of the field that contained a number of Group1 winners.
