TWO OF THE FIRST FOUR IN KAZAKH DERBY
Allan purchased fillies excel against all but one colt
27th Jul 2008
The Night Shift filly FUTUNE, bought from Brian Meehan's consignment at the Autumn horses in Training Sale by Allan Bloodlines for special client Mr Maksat Akhaev almost beat the colts in finishing 2nd in the Kazakhstan Derby at Almaty yesterday.
And February Sales purchase - a real David Allan favourite for almost no money - MORE THAN CARMA by More Than Ready, 2nd in the 1,000 Guineas equivalent, came home 4th in the Derby, keeping up a fine record.
The Derby was won by an American bred colt, imported from Russia.
