Rags To Riches Wins NZ Gr1 Easter Handicap

Tuesday, 18th April 2006

In New Zealand, Hallmark Stud's 5YO gelding Rags To Riches (Entrepreneur-Candescent, by Bassenthwaite) scored a 1-length victory in the NZ$150,000 Gr1 Easter Handicap (1600m) at Ellerslie in Auckland. Rags To Riches (ridden by Michael Coleman for trainer Ralph Manning) defeated front-running 4YO gelding Korau Road (Cape Cross-Just Cruising, by Broad Reach) & 4YO mare La Sizeranne (Stravinsky-Tricia Ann, by Zabeel). Rags To Riches (a NZ$22,000 weanling at the 2001 NZB Broodmare Sale at Karaka & subsequently passed-in for NZ$20,000 at the 2002 NZB Select Colts Yearling Sale) took his record to 10 wins in 32 starts.
