Karaka Friday 5: Sharvasti Relation
Top Kiwi 4YO mare Sharvasti (Montjeu-Vedodara, by Kreisler) is set to contest Saturday's weight-for-age Gr1 Starcraft NZ Stakes (2000m) at Ellerslie, before a possible tilt at Australia's Gr1 BMW (2400m) in Sydney on March 31. Sharvasti boasts 4 wins (including December's Gr1 Avondale Gold Cup) & 5 placings (including last month's Gr1 Whakanui Stud International Stakes, December's Gr1 Zabeel Classic & 2006's Gr3 Lowland Stakes). Friday's NZ Bloodstock Carnival Sale includes a colt by Rich Hill shuttler Jungle Pocket from Straight Strike mare Isodara (a half-sister to Vedodara).
