Singapore Sling bounced back to her best form at Tauranga where he accounted for a high-class field of open handicappers.
The Australian-bred mare overcame her lack of comparative experience to further enhance her future broodmare value. Singapore Sling has now won three of her eight starts, including last season's Listed Soliloquy Lodge Stakes at Ellerslie. A four-year-old by international Gr 1 winner Starcraft, the grey was a $15,000 buy out of Bluegables Farm Select Sale draft to Karaka in 2009.
She was purchased by Grant McLeod whose partner Lisa Anderson trains the four-year-old. Singapore Sling is out of the winning Western Symphony mare Gin Sling who has also produced two multiple winners in Macau. She is a sister to the Gr 3 Sandown Stakes winner Any Rhythm and a three-quarter sister to the Gr 3 Hilton and Coca-Cola Classic winner Gin Rhythm.
This is also the family of the Gr 1 Australian Guineas winner and champion sire Pins and the Gr 1 South Australia Derby and Australasian Oaks winner Zarita
