The baby sister of Shadow Hero, Chenin (Pierro/Sookie) today, Tuesday 15th March 2022 shook off her bridesmaid’s tag to taste victory in the Simplot Food Service Cup Maiden Plate over 1800m at Hawkesbury.

She jumped fairly from barrier 6 and fared well to find third/fourth position, allowing the pace to be contested upfront. She fanned out wide at the corner to find clear space. In the straight she was beautifully balanced by Jockey Josh Parr as she started to draw away from them to cross the finishing line first.

Congratulations to her very patient ownership group which includes Grant Bloodstock and Louis Mihalyka together with the team at Laurel Oak Bloodstock. Congratulations also to Josh Parr who is riding in terrific form. The stable was proud to be a part of Josh’s riding- double on the day.
