Don't Ya Lovett Wins NZ Opunake Cup
In New Zealand, 6YO gelding Don't Ya Lovett (Lord Ballina-Sea Huntress, by Sound Reason) scored a 1.75-lengths victory in the NZ$75,000 Listed Waikato Stud Opunake Cup (1400m) on a heavy track at Hawera. Don't Ya Lovett (ridden by Opie Bosson for trainer Allan Sharrock) defeated fellow 6YO gelding Floydeboy (Mellifont-Fleche D'or, by Northerly Native) & 5YO gelding Bulginbaah (Starjo-Lady Tristimus, by Tristimus). Don't Ya Lovett (a NZ$41,000 yearling at the 2001 NZB Summer Sale) had finished a close 2nd in this race last year, before going on to win the 2005 Gr3 Winter Cup (1600m) at Riccarton Park; overall he now has 10 wins from 20 starts.
