Silver Wolf has once more swept all three legs of the Queens’ Tour Series to be crowned Korea’s Champion Filly or Mare of 2019.
The seven-year-old Australian import won the Ttukseom Cup, KNN Cup and Gyeongnam Governor’s Cup in 2017 butbwas ineligible for last year’s series as it was at that time only open to fillies and mares aged five and under.
That restriction was lifted this year and the Series proved to be a cakewalk for Silver Wolf. The last leg did though prove the toughest as she first had to battle to find a clear run at the top of the stretch and was then pushed all the way by fast finishing pair Gold Blue and Seouri Byeol. The margin on the line was less than two lengths.
Silver Wolf (Oratorio) was winning for the fifth time in a row in an unbeaten 2019 campaign. She has seventeen career wins from thirty-three lifetime starts and on Sunday broke the 3 Billion Won Prize Money mark. She now lies in 3rd on the all-time money earners list behind only Triple Nine and Power Blade, the latter of whom she holds a win over.
