Monday, 27th October 2008

NZ Waikato Stud sire Pins (Snippets-No Finer, by Kaoru Star) added a group success when 5YO gelding Gallopin (Pins-Carla Rossi, by Spectacular Love) snatched victory by a head in the final strides of the $250,000 Gr2 Cathay Pacific Airways (2500m) for 4YOs & up at Moonee Valley. Gallopin (ridden by Jamie Winks for trainer Danny O'Brien) defeated favoured 7YO gelding Baughurst (Tayasu Tsuyoshi-Mrs. Parnell, by At Talaq) & 6YO gelding Ice Chariot (Semipalatinsk-Snow Chariot, by Chariot). Gallopin (a NZ$40,000 yearling at the 2005 NZB Select Sale) took his record to 8 wins (including last season's Listed Bagot Handicap over 2500m at Flemington) & 5 placings (including April's Listed Auckland Racing Club Handicap over 1600m) from 18 starts for $523,868 earnings.
