Bulginbaah Wins NZ Fairdale Stud Flying
Top-weighted 7YO gelding Bulginbaah (Starjo-Lady Tristimus, by Tristimus) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the NZ$60,000 Listed Fairdale Stud Flying Handicap (1400m) at Awapuni. Bulginbaah (ridden by Jason Symes for trainers Kern Cropp & Catherine Wilson) scored by a long-neck from fellow 5YO gelding Nitty Gritty (Bahhare-Flying Chance, by Centaine) with a further long-neck to 4YO mare Polish Princess (Polish Precedent-Repeat Warning, by Warning). Bulginbaah (who previously won this race in 2005) took his record to 12 wins (also including 2006's Listed Foxbridge Plate over 1400m & Listed Wanganui Stakes over 1600m) & 6 placings (including 2006's Listed Waikato Stud Opunake Cup over 1400m) from 31 starts.
