Aaralyn broke her maiden status when taking out the $22,000 Calvary Mater Newcastle Hospital 3YO Maiden Plate (1350m) at Newcastle (Beaumont track) on March 12.
A recent addition to the stable, Aaralyn took a beautiful box seat in fourth position on the rails before replacement jockey Grant Buckley broke away at the 200 metres to beat opposition by one and a half lengths.
The Greg and Donna Kolivos-owned filly capped off a great week for the duo, recording three winners with Team Snowden courtesy of Infinite Grace and Regatta Rebel’s double act affair earlier in the week at Kembla Grange on March 7.
By Choisir out of Gold Chant - who’s a daughter from Gold Anthem making Gold Chant a half-sister to multiple Group 1 champion Starspangledbanner, Aaralyn hails from the prolific Circles Of Gold broodmare family line with her great grand-dam National Song, being a half-sister to Circles Of Gold.
Circles Of Gold of course produced globetrotting stars Elvstroem, which secured five Group 1 wins in Australia and the Group 1 Dubai Duty Free and Coolmore-based stallion Haradasun who won three elite races (Royal Ascot’s Queen Anne Stakes, Doncaster Mile, and George Ryder) during his illustrious racetrack career.
