Also in NZ, Cambridge Stud's Australian-bred stallion Keeper (Danehill-Nuwirah, by Pleasant Colony) added a juvenile black-type success when daughter Keeper Special (Keeper-Jasben, by Sun And Shine) scored by a long-neck against the males in the NZ$55,000 Listed Ryder Stakes (1200m) for 2YOs at Foxton. Keeper Special (ridden by Darryl Bradley for trainers Gareth McRae & Garry Newham) defeated fellow filly Jasminka (Sakura Seeking-Stella Suprema, by Zeditave) & the gelding Big Love (Cullen-Loving Is Fun, by Spectacular Love). Keeper Special took her record to 2 wins from 3 starts for NZ$43,775 earnings.
