Mirkola Lass Wins NZ Spring Classic
In Christchurch, US Gr1-winning former shuttler Prized added a stakes triumph when 6YO mare Mirkola Lass (Prized-Gun Lady, by Guns Of Navarone) won the NZ$55,000 Spring Classic Handicap at Riccarton Park. Ridden by David Walsh for trainers Kenny & Lisa Rae, Mirkola Lass scrambled home by a short-neck from 7YO gelding Salt (Gold Brose-Symphony, by Kaapstad) & 6YO gelding Al Farouk (Cape Cross-Temptation, by Deputy Governor). A NZ$800 bargain as a 2YO at the NZB NZ Spring Sale, Mirkola Lass now has 7 wins & 14 placings from 40 starts for $379,244 earnings.
