Veronica Franco Wins NZ Gr3 Eulogy Stakes
Multiple Gr1-winning former NZ Highview Stud shuttler Johar (Gone West-Windsharp, by Lear Fan) added a group success when 3YO filly Veronica Franco (Johar-Crystal Hailey, by Greinton) scored a half-neck victory in the NZ$70,000 Gr3 Ezibuy Eulogy Stakes (1600m) for 3YOs at Riccarton Park in Christchurch. Veronica Franco (ridden by Chad Ormsby for trainers Roger James & Paul Mirabelli) defeated fellow fillies Katie Lee (Pins-Miss Jessie Jay, by Spectacularphantom) & Adulterer (Traditionally-It's My Sin, by Success Express). Veronica Franco (a NZ$80,000 yearling consigned from Longlands Stud at the 2008 NZ Bloodstock Premier Sale at Karaka) now has 3 wins & 2 placings from 6 starts for NZ$56,325 earnings.
