Howmuchyacharging Wins NZ Highview Stakes
Fairdale Stud-bred Howmuchyacharging (Howbaddouwantit-Fairdale Lass) prevailed in a 3-way-photo-finish to the NZ$50,000 Gr3 Highview Stakes (1200m) for 3YO fillies at Hastings. Howmuchyacharging (ridden by Grant Cooksley for trainer Murray Baker) won by a half-neck from front-running Crepe De Chine (Pins-Glo) with a further half-neck to City Affair (On A Hill-Royal Pay). The race was also the opening leg of this season's NZ Bloodstock Filly-Of-The-Year series. Howmuchyacharging (a NZ$26,000 yearling at the 2004 NZ Bloodstock Karaka Select Sale) finished 3rd in last season's NZ Gr1 Ford Manawatu Sires' Produce Stakes.
