Six Out Of Six for Puissance de Lune’s Unstoppable Chantrea

Mark Smith - Saturday July 18

With the loss of stable stalwart Scales Of Justice, it has not been the best of weeks for the Lindsay Smith stable, however it ended on a high note when Chantrea extended her winning streak to six in Saturday’s Listed Belmont Classic (2200m).

Although she was running on empty over the final 100 metres the daughter of  Puissance de Lune called on all her courage under Willie Pike to defy the challenge of the Not A Single Doubt filly Heaven's Gift by a short-neck with the Maschino gelding Marocchino two lengths back in third.

A ho

mebred for part-owner Professor John Yovich, Chantrea completed the Belmont Oaks – Belmont Classic double to advance her record to six wins from as many starts with earnings of $255,500.

The final foal of her pensioned dam, Chantrea is the eleventh foal and ninth winner from ten to race out of the 4-time winning Danzig Connection mare Mosse, a half-sister to the Group II VRC Sires' Produce Stakes winner and wonderful broodmare De Lago Mist the dam of stakes winners Instinction, Into The Mist and Shrouded In Mist.

Chantrea is one of two stakes winners for Swettenham Stud’s Shamardal (USA) stallion Puissance de Lune (IRL) who has earned a rise in fee to $19,800 in 2020.
