Comme Tu Veux Wins NZ Ray Coupland Stakes
In New Zealand yesterday, Fairdale Stud stallion Howbaddouwantit (Rahy-Fair To The Wind, by Nijinsky) added a black-type success when his filly Comme Tu Veux (Howbaddouwantit-Justa Babe, by Flying Spur) was 2nd-across-the-line but given the race on protest in the NZ$50,000 Listed Ray Coupland Stakes (1400m) for 3YOs at Ashburton. Comme Tu Veux (ridden by Samantha Spratt for trainer Richard Yuill) duly defeated fellow filly Corsage (Volksraad-Spray, by Entrepreneur) & another filly Sandie (Footstepsinthesand-Shana, by Darshaan). Comme Tu Veux (a NZ$80,000 yearling at the 2008 NZ Bloodstock Select Sale) now has 3 wins & 2 placings (including July's Listed Ryder Stakes over 1200m at Otaki) from 8 starts for NZ$48,900 earnings.
