Pasta Post Wins NZ Manawatu Classic
NZ Stoney Bridge-based stallion Postponed (Summer Squall-Bridal Tea, by Gulch) added a group success when gelded son Pasta Post (Postponed-Blue Heaven, by Centaine) romped home by 5.25-lengths in the NZ$100,000 Gr3 The Oaks Stud Manawatu Classic (2000m) for 3YOs at Awapuni. Pasta Post (ridden by Sean Collins for trainers Graeme Sanders & Debbie Sweeney) defeated the filly Castlebar (Volksraad-Search, by Star Way) & Gr1-placed fellow filly Overkaast (Kaapstad-Daytime, by Heroicity). Pasta Post (a $22,000 yearling at the 2005 NZB Select Sale at Karaka) took his record to 3 wins from 4 starts.
