Stickpin Wins Listed Victoria Handicap

Tuesday, 10th April 2007

And in the only stakes event at Caulfield in Melbourne yesterday, Waikato Stud's leading stallion Pins (Snippets-No Finer, by Kaoru Star) landed a stakes success when 4YO gelding Stickpin (Pins-Reputedly, by Quest For Fame) won the $100,000 Victoria Handicap (1400m). Stickpin, ridden by Darren Gauci for trainer Brian Mayfield-Smith, held off the fast closing, but luckless in running, favoured fellow 4YO gelding Mind Your Head (Mujahid-Nefertari, by Clay Hero) by 1.5 lengths, with a further half length back to rank outsider 6YO gelding Party Pie (Brocco-Surreal Thing, by Bellotto) in 3rd. A NZ$90,000 yearling at the 2004 NZB Select Sale at Karaka, Stickpin now has 7 wins and 4 placings from 21 starts for earnings of $237,900.
