Ascot Winner for Stryker
Beating older horses at Ascot on Wednesday was progressive three year-old Stryker filly Persian Princess, a $24,000 Inglis Select Weanling purchase from the Three Bridges draft for John Chalmers Bloodstock.
Prepared by Alan Matthews, Persian Princess overcame early trouble to power home and win the 1500 metre contest by a half head having finished fourth, third and second at her three previous runs.
Persian Princess has now two of seven starts with more wins in store.
Bred by Three Bridges and Richard Pegum, Persian Princess is from Vaziri, a three-quarter sister to stakes-winner Danasia, the dam of Group I winner Zabrasive.
