Autumn targets for My Gold Bracelet

Group Two winner My Gold Bracelet (NZ) (Pins) has been turned out for the spring in preparation for some black-type targets in Victoria in the autumn.

The daughter of Pins won three of her four starts in New Zealand for former trainers Johnno Benner and Hollie Wynyard, including the Gr.2 Wellington Guineas (1400m).

She was then transferred to Mick Price and Michael Kent Jr’s Caulfield stable where she placed in her Australian debut before two unplaced runs in the Gr.2 Lets Elope Stakes (1400m) and Gr.2 Stocks Stakes (1600m).

“She has been a little bit disappointing, but there is a reason for that,” part-owner Jen Campin said.

“I think the firmer tracks were against her. That’s why we made the decision to put her out and wait for the autumn and get a bit of ease in those tracks for her.

“We haven’t seen the best of her yet and Michael Kent Jr is very excited about her future.”

Back in New Zealand, Campin has been celebrating the success of her Group One winner Wyndspelle (NZ) (Iffraaj) being crowned Central Districts Horse Of The Year.

Wyndspelle recorded his long-awaited first Group One victory in Captain Cook Stakes (1600m) at Trentham last December and now stands at Grangewilliam Stud, near Wanganui.

“All the members of each (club) committee in the Central Districts voted him horse of the year,” Campin said.

“Hollie and Johnno received trainer of the year and we received owners of the year.

“I was absolutely stoked.”

Campin has been pleased with the level of support Wyndspelle has received in his first season at stud.

“We are pretty happy,” she said. “We have had no stallion parades due to COVID-19 restrictions other than a tiny one at Hawera.

“He has some nice broodmares going to him.”

Meanwhile, Campin is looking forward to the future with promising gelding Wononeohwon (NZ) (Tavistock) who shares a similar ownership as Wyndspelle.

“He had his first start the other day and came from the back and ran third,” she said.

Campin revealed a sentimental reason behind the name of the gelding.

“I wanted to call him The Sentinel because the other owner, John Frew, was sadly diagnosed with cancer and passed away,” she said.

“We wanted to respect his involvement with us and he lived in apartment 1101 at The Sentinel over in Takapuna.

“Wyndspelle was the very first horse he invested in with me and we have had a lot of luck since.

“His sister has taken over the ownership in Wononeohwon and is in the ownership of Wyndspelle.”
