The Dow Jones Is Rising
Apr 12, 2014
Since arriving in our stable earlier in the year, 7yo mare 'The Dow Jones' has not stopped impressing. In her first two starts for the stable she was able to back up some pretty slick trackwork with two fast finishing 2nd's only to go one step better in her third attempt, winning the CL4 Hcp over 1200m at the Gold Coast. The Dow Jones showed an electric turn of foot in the finishing stages of the race, easily pulling away from a fast finishing Torero 2nd, and Chosen Talent 3rd. The Dow Jones is a lovely looking, well educated mare who was bred and raised in NZ by Erana Shattock of Anistay Lodge and is now owned and raced by Neil Van Epen.
Later in the day, Anton En Avant proved that the money was right when despite being trapped three wide the entire trip went on to comfortably win the CL2 Hcp 1400m.
Both winners were ridden by Cassandra Schmidt who rode a treble on the day and finished 2nd in the last race. It was Cassandra's 4th win for the stable in under two weeks, also piloting Gizmo and River Spirit to victory earlier in the month.
