30/07/02 HOY: Sunline Takes the Top Female Honours
r6sunline.jpg (11511 bytes)Champion New Zealand mare Sunline has won her first award of the Australia's Racing Champions Night in Melbourne when she was announced as winning the Champion Filly or Mare of the season.

Winning trainer Trevor McKee and her owners were on hand to accept the award, just a couple of hours after she was surprisingly inducted into the Australian Racing Hall of Fame.

Sunline dominated the award over the Caulfield and Melbourne Cup winner Ethereal, polling close to triple the amount of votes than her rival kiwi.

r6sunline3.jpg (8560 bytes)A daughter of the Victorian based stallion Desert Sun, Sunline had a great season by winning three Group One races - she was also a group one winner in New Zealand - however that race was not able to be taken into consideration.

Ethereal, a member of the Sheila Laxon stable, was also a three time Group One winner, and the vote was expected to be a lot closer than it originally was.

Talented three-year-old Ha Ha and the bonny two-year-old filly Victory Vein both polled one vote.


SUNLINE (NZ) 110 (69.18%)
Ethereal (NZ) 47 (29.56)
Ha Ha 1 (0.63%)
Victory Vein 1 (0.63%)

PICS - Quentin Lang.
