Dr Green Wins NZ Wanganui Guineas
Coolmore shuttler Fusaichi Pegasus (Mr Prospector-Angel Fever, by Danzig) added an NZ black-type success when his colt Dr Green (Fusaichi Pegasus-Palia, by Last Tycoon) won the NZ$35,000 Listed Wanganui Guineas (1320m) for 3YOs at Wanganui. Dr Green (ridden by Hayden Tinsley for trainer Brian Jenkins) defeated fellow colts Kelantan (Cape Cross-Stever House) & Tatlock (Elnadim-Bills Girl). Dr Green (a NZ$480,000 yearling at the 2004 NZB National Yearling Sale at Karaka) was having his 1st start since finishing unplaced as a 2YO in Australia's Gr1 Golden Slipper Stakes at Rosehill Gardens in Sydney in March. Last season Dr Green won NZ's Listed Wellesley Stakes at Trentham on debut; among 4 starts in Sydney during the autumn, he finished 3rd in the Silver Slipper Stakes & 4th in the Todman Stakes.
