Raid Wins NZ Lion Red Plate

Monday, 20th October 2008

Waikato Stud sire Pins (Snippets-No Finer, by Kaoru Star) added a black-type success when 3YO filly Raid (Pins-Vanilla Sky, by O'Reilly) scored a 0.75-length victory over her older rivals in the NZ$65,000 weight-for-age Listed Lion Red Plate (1200m) at Tauranga. Raid (ridden by Samantha Spratt for trainer Stephen McKee) defeated front-running favoured 5YO mare Magic Tryst (Magic Ring-Our Tistajet, by Jetball) & 4YO mare Tootsie (Pins-Hyades, by O'Reilly). Raid (a NZ$250,000 yearling consigned by Waikato Stud at the 2007 NZ Bloodstock Premier Sale at Karaka) now has 2 wins & 5 placings (including March's Gr1 Ford Diamond Stakes over 1200m at Ellerslie, February's Gr2 Robin Duke Of Bedford Matamata Breeders Stakes over 1200m at Matamata & January's Listed NZ Bloodstock Karaka Million over 1200m at Ellerslie) from 11 starts for $186,250 earnings.
