Australian Group 1 quinella for Carnegie

Saturday: Randwick; Chipping Norton Stakes (Group 1)

TUESDAY JOY (m Carnegie - Joie Denise)

CARNEGIE, the Arc hero of 1994, enjoyed a successful day's action on Saturday at Randwick when siring the first two home in the Chipping Norton Stakes.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained Tuesday Joy prevailed by three-quarters of a length from Visions Of Power to land her second consecutive win in the race. Gallant Tess, a daughter of Galileo, finished on the heels of the first two in third.

Bred by Strawberry Hill Stud, Tuesday Joy is one of four Group 1 winners by Carnegie, who stands at Darley's Aberdeen base in Australia for A$16,500.

By Sadler's Wells and out of an Arc winner in Detroit, Carnegie wasted little time in living up tohis illustrious breeding by taking the Prix Niel and Prix Eugene Adam prior to his success in the Arc as a three-year-old for Andre Fabre.

He returned the following year to win the Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud and run third in the Breeders' Cup Turf.

Carnegie opened his stud career at Shadai Stallion Staion in Japan, from where he shuttled to Trelawney Stud in New Zealand. From those crops sprung the Group 1 winner Amalfi, and following that good start, he was incorporated into Darley's Australian operation.

A daughter of the 1995 Group 1 Queensland Oaks heroine Joie Denise, Tuesday Joy is a half-sister to five winners including the Group 1 Australian Oaks winner Sunday Joy (Sunday Silence).

The daughter of Danehill is out the four-time Group 1 winner Denise's Joy, who topped the 1975-76 Australian Free Handicap.

Blast helps keep Scenic on top

Another Sadler's Wells-line stallion on the Group 1 mark in Australia was Scenic, sire of Newmarket Handicap winner Scenic Blast.

The deceased stallion, who dead-heated with Prince Of Dance in the 1988 Dewhurst Stakes, currently holds a slender lead over Redoute's Choice on the Australian sires' list with the winners of over A$6.3m to his name.

Scenic Blast is the final foal out of the Grade 1-placed Daughter's Charm, a daughter of the Hoist The Flag mare Delgado. As well as Scenic Blast, Daughter's Charm is also the dam of Group 1 winner Gilded Venom (Golden Snake), who sadly died in January.

Group 1 success for Danzero; first for Show A Heart

Also enjoying Group 1 success was former Cheveley Park shuttler Danzero, sire of Australian Cup winner Niconero, and Australia's leading first and second crop sire Show A Heart, who was represented by his first winner at top level when Heart Of Dreams obliged in the Australian Guineas.
