Monday, 3rd March 2008

In Singapore. former NZ Trelawney Stud shuttler Van Nistelrooy (Storm Cat-Halory, by Halo) added a group success when his son & last year's Gr3 Juvenile Championship winner Onceuponatime (Van Nistelrooy-Scarlet Runner, by Kingdom Bay) finished powerfully from the rear of the field to score a 1.25-lengths victory in the S$200,000 (A$160,000) Gr3 Singapore Guineas (1600m) for 3YOs at Kranji. Onceuponatime (ridden by Australian jockey Danny Beasley for trainer David Hill) defeated front-running Big Maverick (O'Reilly-Ajfan by Woodman) & Risky Business (Danehill Dancer-Sky Watch, by Star Watch). At his previous start Onceuponatime finished runner-up in last month's Gr3 Three Rings Trophy (1400m) at Kranji, following a similar runner-up in December's Gr3 Steward's Cup (1400m) at Kranji. In July 2007 Onceuponatime won the Gr3 Magic Millions Juvenile Championship (1200m) for 2YOs at Kranji; overall he now has 5 wins & 5 placings from 10 starts. Onceuponatime was originally a NZ$60,000 purchase consigned by Haunui Farm at the 2006 NZB Ready-To-Run Sale.
