Firebolts Second Group Win This Season

22 May 2011

Firebolt (Stravinsky ex Woodsong, by Woodman) scored his second Group Race victory this season when leading nearly all the way to take out last Saturday’s Group Three Lord Mayor’s Cup (1615m) at Doomben in Brisbane.


Prepared at Cambridge by Roger James,
Firebolt was a Group Two winner back at the start of the season, taking out the STC Shannon Stakes (1500m) in Sydney during September.


This latest result comes hard off the back of Cambridge Stud’s announcement that Firebolt’s sire, Stravinsky, is returning to stand at the property where he began his Southern Hemisphere stud career.


Stravinsky has winners in 30 countries and
Firebolt is one of 67 individual black type winners by the sire.
