CHOIR MAIDEN (AUS)
Choisir (AUS) - Prolong (AUS) by Gold Brose (AUS)
Choir Maiden won impressively by 3.2 lengths Sunday for trainer Tony Rivalland under a confident ride from top jockey Anton Marcus.
An Australian import, Backworth races this daughter of Choisir, one of the best young sires in Australia, with our dear friend Mary Liley.
The Coolmore Stud stallion rates consistently among the leading sires in Australia. He was Champion 2-year-old colt of his year and winner of the Group 1 Lightning Stakes at 3. Choisir put Australian thoroughbreds on the map as never before when winning both the Group 1 Golden Jubilee Stakes and the Group 2 King’s Stand Stakes at Royal Ascot within 5 days of each other.
Choisir’s leading performers include Starspangledbanner, a dual hemisphere champion, dual Group 1 winner Sacred Choice, 2012 Group 1 winning 2-year-old Choice Bro as well as 2013 Group 1 winner Historian. He is the sire of eleven individual Stakes winners including three exciting 2-year-olds already this season!
This win takes Choir Maiden’s career record to 4 wins and 8 places from 16 starts.
