Third stakes winner by Warrior’s Reward

Andreya’s Reward became the third stakes winner for Spendthrift Australian shuttler Warrior’s Reward (USA) in Florida on Saturday.

Trained by Milton Wolfson, Andreya’s Reward exploded in the straight for a decisive victory in the LR Our Dear Peggy Stakes (1600m).  She won by two lengths from Harlan’s Darlin (Harlan’s Holiday) and it marked her second dominant win over a mile on turf at Gulfstream Park following a four-length maiden back in August.

Wolfson sent her interstate last month to finish fifth in the $300,000 Kentucky Downs Juvenile Fillies Stakes before returning home to Florida.  A promising filly with a bright future ahead, she was bred by “Share The Upside” participants Bob Horton, Rae Horton, and Charles Middleton.

Andreya’s Reward (2f Warrior’s Reward – Deal Us In by Mister Baileys) is a younger half-sister to winners by Spendthrift sire Into Mischief and Victorian shuttler Artie Schiller.  Their dam is an unraced sister to Group 1 performer Cool Ashlee.

Warrior’s Reward (Medaglia d’Oro) sired another maiden winner on Saturday when Fighting Iris scored a front-running victory at Northlands Park in Canada.  The Spendthrift Farm bred filly is from Macellya, a mare sired by Australian champion Testa Rossa when he shuttled to France in 2003.

Spendthrift Australia shuttles Warrior’s Reward to its Romsey base in Victoria for an $11,000 (inc gst) fee or $13,750 (inc gst) as part of their Share The Upside program.
