Monday, 14th September 2009

In New Zealand, former Westbury Stud shuttler Elnadim (Danzig-Elle Seule, by Exclusive Native) added a group success when 6YO gelding Elblitzem (Elnadim-Arduous, by Mohamed Abdu) scored a 3.5-lengths victory in the NZ$70,000 Gr3 Merial Metric Mile (1600m) at Awapuni. Elblitzem (ridden by David Walsh for trainers Robert Priscott & Clayton Chipperfield) defeated 5YO gelding Kuda Mahal (Al Akbar-Sylvia Star, by Lord Century) & 6YO mare Yanna Marie (Lord Ballina-Erin Marie, by Catus). Elblitzem (passed-in as a yearling for NZ$28,000 at the NZ Bloodstock Select Sale) took his record to 6 wins & 12 placings (including 2008's Listed Rotorua Plate over 1900m at Gate Pa) from 33 starts for NZ$198,575 earnings.
