In New Zealand, Totara Park's 1st-season sire Rusty Spur (West By West-Goodbye Heart, by Tsunami Slew) continued his dream start to his stud career when his 1st starter Silk Spur (Rusty Spur-Silk Purse, by Defensive Play) successfully backed-up just 7 days after winning her debut at Wanganui with a 2nd victory by 2.25-lengths over 880m at Ruakaka for trainers Graeme & Mark Sanders. Silk Spur was a NZ$17,000 yearling at the 2007 NZ Bloodstock Karaka Festival Sale. Rusty Spur (a stakes-winner of 9 races from 900-1400m) stands at Totara Park for NZ$4,000+GST.
