Stateside silver lining for All American


Monday, 7 November 2016 - Champion filly Yankee Rose will undergo knee surgery following her unplaced run in the G1 VRC Oaks but there was a silver lining for her sire All American during the Melbourne Cup carnival.


All American winners continue to surface in the USA from his one-off shuttle to Darby Dan Farm in Kentucky. His fillies Infiltrada and America Mon Amie completed a double at Gulfstream on Friday and Hawthorne on Saturday.


Infiltrada had to work from an outside gate to grab an early lead and then ran the field ragged to win by almost three lengths over 1600m. Initially trained by Luis Duco, she was claimed by Henry Collazo on behalf of Four Horsemen Stable after winning a Gulfstream maiden by panels in May.


Her dam Believe in Wonder (Aldebaran) is a half-sister to Group 1 winners Grass Wonder (Nakayama Arima Kinen) & Wonder Again (Saratoga Diana Hcp).


AMERICA MON AMIE

All American stakes winner America Mon Amie scored for the fifth time with a last-to-first victory at Hawthorne. Reserved at the back-half of the field, she rallied smartly in the straight under firm encouragement from Santo Sanjur to win by two lengths.


The Tony Granitz trained filly won the LR Canterbury Park Oaks last year for Captain Jack Stable. Her dam Si Si Mon Amie (El Corredor) is related to Champion USA 2YO Colt Silent Screen.



Meanwhile, Yankee Rose will be sidelined until the Brisbane winter carnival following her failure in the VRC Oaks. “She pulled up lame with filling in her near-fore knee," trainer David Vandyke said. "X-rays revealed a bone-chip which will be operated on next week.


"Yankee Rose has done an outstanding job this season so that last run won’t tarnish what's been a fantastic preparation.”


All American stands at Geisel Park for a fee of $10,000 (plus gst). For bookings and further information contact: Conor Dunlop (0447 434 735), Eddie Rigg (0418 942 304), Mark Pilkington (0418 955 837).
