Derby aspirations for Amalfi Prince

Amalfi Prince (Sebring) has put himself into Gr.1 Vodafone New Zealand Derby (2400m) contention after he broke through for his maiden win at Hastings on Thursday. It was the fourth start for the Sebring gelding, having finished runner-up in his first two outings before running fifth over 1400m at Tauranga earlier this month. Trainer Jamie Richards was pleased to see his charge get his maiden win when scoring in the Wairoa RC @ Hastings 20 Feb Maiden (1600m). “It was a nice ride from Joe (Kamaruddin),” Richards said. “I was…

Kaapfever Rules the roost on Australia Day

Kaapfever (NZ) (Sufficient) produced one of the biggest moments in racing for breeder and co-owner Colin Rule at Warwick Farm on Wednesday when winning the Listed Australia Day Cup (2400m). The son of Sufficient ran third in the race last year and Rule was delighted that the Joe Pride-trained gelding was able to go two better this year. Rule didn’t give the New Zealand-bred seven-year-old much of a chance until he neared the 800m mark. “It was amazing, we didn’t give him a chance halfway around,” Rule said. “It was…

Cameron hoping he’s on the right one for Thorndon

Gun jockey Matthew Cameron is hoping all the pieces of the puzzle that is Saturday’s Gr.1 Harcourts Thorndon Mile (1600m) at Trentham might have fallen into place for him. Cameron had initially accepted the ride on the Annabel Neasham-trained Holyfield (I Am Invincible) but when that Aussie raider was withdrawn on Wednesday, the two-time champion jockey snapped up the mount on the Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman-trained The Chosen One (NZ) (Savabeel). It presents Cameron with a gilt-edged opportunity to win his first Group One race since the 2019 New…

Trentham trip to decide filly’s end goal

Gifted filly La Crique (NZ) (Vadamos) will be the mistress of her own destiny and her performance at Trentham on Saturday will determine her major three-year-old target. She will bid to add to her tidy record in the Gr.3 New Zealand Bloodstock Desert Gold Stakes (1600m) while talented stablemate Te Toki (NZ) (Tarzino) will be back on track at Ellerslie on Sunday after a no risk approach ruled him out of Karaka Million 3YO Classic (1600m) contention. La Crique has hardly put a foot wrong in her limited career with…

Maher and Eustace double up with kiwi-breds at Caulfield

A pair of New Zealand-bred horses produced a winning double for Ciaron Maher and David Eustace at Caulfield on Wednesday. $11 chance Playoffs (NZ) (Tavistock) was first to salute in the McCafe Handicap (2000m) out staying his rivals to post his fifth career win. Later on the card Yonce (NZ) (Proisir) rallied after being headed in the home straight to justify support that saw her backed in from $1.90 to $1.55 in The Mary Bell (1400m). While punters seemingly had cause for concern when Ayahuasca headed Yonce and jockey John Allen at the 100m, Maher…

Freedmans Open Minded about Group One opportunity

Open Minded (NZ) (Jimmy Choux) might have earned himself a throw at the Group One stumps after continuing his career progression with a maiden Stakes win at Caulfield on Wednesday. The Anthony and Sam Freedman-trained gelding cashed in on a brilliant Damien Thornton ride to score an all-the-way win in the Listed John Dillon Stakes (1400m). It was the son of Jimmy Choux’s ninth win from 18 starts and fourth in as many starts at Caulfield, which Sam Freedman said may warrant a crack at the Gr.1 C.F. Orr Stakes (1400m) at…
