Monday, 12th October 2009

Former Westbury Stud shuttler Elnadim (Danzig-Elle Seule, by Exclusive Native) added a black-type success when favoured 6YO gelding Elblitzem (Elnadim-Arduous, by Mohamed Abdu) scored a 1.25-lengths victory in the NZ$50,000 Listed Matamata Cup (1600m) at Matamata. Elblitzem (ridden by David Walsh for trainers Robert Priscott & Clayton Chipperfield) defeated 5YO gelding Kuda Mahal (Al Akbar-Sylvia Star, by Lord Century) & 8YO gelding Waitui Music (Germano-Angel Of Music, by Amyntor). Elblitzem (passed-in as a yearling for NZ$28,000 at the NZ Bloodstock Select Sale) took his record to 7 wins (also including September's Gr3 Merial Metric Mile over 1600m at Awapuni) & 12 placings (including 2008's Listed Rotorua Plate over 1900m at Gate Pa) from 36 starts for NZ$234,825 earnings.
