Zarita Wins 2010 Sunline Stakes

February 15th, 2010

The Moonee Valley Racecourse was host to a plethora of fantastic racing on Saturday with the 2010 Sunline Stakes just one of nine races to take place.

The Pat Hyland-trained Zarita ($1.95) dominated the odds going into the race, and lived up to expectations, finishing the Group 2 race victorious.

It seems the next move for the mare will be the Group 1 Australia Cup (2000m) on the 6th of March where she came in fourth place last year.

The 2010 Sunline Stakes saw Princess Marizza finish a length behind Zarita to take an impressive second spot finish in the 1,600 metre race worth $200,000.

The Tony Noonan-trained Silvercitymiss came in third, while Noonan’s other starter, Chelle’s Alibi finished in last spot.
Casual Friday went into the 2010 Sunline Stakes with strong wins behind here but finished in a disappointing eighth position.

The Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) was the feature race of the day seeing Turffontein the surprise winner.
