Fiscal Madness Wins Great Easter Stakes
And Windsor Park's champion sire Volksraad (Green Desert-Celtic Assembly, by Secretariat) added yet another black-type success when 4YO gelding Fiscal Madness (Volksraad-Belle Nuite, by Balmerino) blitzed his rivals by 3.5-lengths in the NZ$30,000 Listed Great Easter Stakes (1400m) at Riccarton Park. Fiscal Madness (ridden by Jamie Bullard for trainers Peter & Dawn Williams) defeated 5YO gelding Tenjuberrymud (Al Akbar-Make Up, by Take Your Partner) & dead-heating 5YO gelding Sand Sweeper (Sandtrap-Calm As, by Conquistarose) & 5YO mare Ticklish (Maroof-French Kiss, by Paris House). Fiscal Madness (passed-in for just NZ$12,000 as a yearling at the 2003 NZB Select Colts Sale) finished 2nd in the Listed Timaru Cup (1600m) on December 28; as a 3YO, he won the Listed Southland Guineas (1600m) & was runner-up in the Gr1 Levin Classic (1600m).
