18/01/02 Aussie Mares Shine at Santa Anita

Former top class Perth mares Old Money and Kalatiara are continuing to fly the flag for Australia by winning and running third in the feature race at Santa Anita Park in America on Wednesday.

Old Money, a mare by Old Spice, was too classy winning the US$65,000 allowance race for fillies and mares by a length and a half.

With Eddie Delahoussaye in the saddle, Old Money proved too strong in the mile race downing local hope Queen of Wilshire. Fellow Perth mare Kalatiara was third a further two and a half lengths back.

After stalking the leaders throughout Old Money pounced on the lead at the top of the straight and then pulled clear for a comprehensive win.

Both Old Money and Kalatiara are owned by the Stonerside Stable and trained by Ronald McAnally.

Old Money left Australia after three consecutive feature race wins over the Perth summer carnival in 2000. After scoring a win in the Group Two WA Oaks, she bassed up to take both the CB Cox Stakes (beating the older horses by over a length), before thrashing the boys in the Group One WATC Derby by nearly two and a half lengths.

Kalatiara burst onto the racing scene in Western Australia. She made up for her shock debut defeat at Northam by winning her next seven starts. Graduating from a Maiden at York she swept through her grades taking the Group Two WA Guineas. She would later finish third (to Old Money) in the WA Oaks. Her only unplaced run in Australia was her last on our shores - the WA Derby (again to Old Money).
