Fercertain Wins NZ Thompson Handicap
Former NZ champion sire Centaine (Century-Rainbeam, by Vain) added a group success when front-running 5YO gelding Fercertain (Centaine-Lady Fergie, by Sir Tristram) scored a 1.75-lengths victory in the NZ$80,000 Gr3 Thompson Handicap (1600m) at Trentham. Fercertain (ridden by Bruce Herd for trainer Lisa Latta) defeated fellow 5YO gelding Kaapeon Way (Kaapstad-Leontyne, by Star Way) & 4YO gelding Titsgittin (Danske-Showplace, by Palace Music). Fercertain (a NZ$35 yearling consigned by Delahunty Farms at the 2004 NZB Select Sale) took his record to 4 wins & 14 placings (including January's Listed Anniversary Handicap over 1600m at Trentham) from 31 starts.
