Deceased former Grangewilliam Stud stallion Al Akbar (Success Express-Gala Night, by Blakeny) added a black type success when 5YO gelding Run Like Al (Al Akbar-Night Mare, by Mercury) scored by a head in the NZ$45,000 Listed Ag And Sprint Handicap (1400m) at Te Rapa. Run Like Al (ridden by Samantha Spratt for trainer Jakki Good) defeated 5YO mare Barinka (Shinko King-Hay Barlu, by Hay Baba Riba) & 4YO mare Latika (Bertolini-Meryl, by Imperial Seal).
