Another 2-year-old winner for Havana Gold!
There have been two Havana Gold two-year-olds run this year and both have won! Anadora became the second when winning the fillies' conditions stakes at Newcastle on Good Friday.
Despite being slowest from the stalls, Anadora was noted travelling very well at halfway and she showed the good attitude associated with her sire's progeny to edge out Alaskan Jewel by a head under Kevin Stott.
Anadora did very well to overcome her obvious inexperience and she promises to do even better when stepped up to six furlongs.
The CHH Racing-owned Anadora was very well bought for 22,000gns as a yearling by her trainer Kevin Ryan and bloodstock agent Stephen Hillen at the Tattersalls December Yearling Sale.
Being out of Crafty Prospector mare Keladora makes Anadora a full sister to Mawakib, who cost 190,000gns as a yearling and has won twice. The mare has also produced four other winners.
The success was poignant as Anadora was bred by Jackie Laws, who very sadly passed away this year. The filly was consigned as a yearling by Oakshott Bloodstock.
There was a second Havana Gold winner on the day as Havagomecca made winning return in the five-furlong novice at Newcastle, giving apprentice Aidan Redpath his first winner. She was bred by Mrs. S Lidsey and races for David Metcalfe and trainer Michael Dods.
