SPANISH WHISPER scores G2 win for sire LOPE DE VEGA

Due to a fantastic finish, SPANISH WHISPER by LOPE DE VEGA recorded her fourth group win at Flemington, Australia today. The four-year-old ran a formidable race in the AUSD200,000 G2 Let's Elope Stakes where she had the better end by a half-length margin after a race behind the pace and a strong late run in the last furlong. Mark Zahra was aboard SPANISH WHISPER, who could next be pointed to the G1 Toorak Handicap as she has now reached last year's performance level again which had led her to G1 success in New Zealand, according to her connections around trainer David Hayes and owners Seymoor Bloodstock.
