Tip The Wink Wins NZ Flying Handicap
Coolmore-owned former Cambridge Stud shuttler Stravinsky (Nureyev-Fire The Groom, by Blushing Groom) also added a NZ black-type success when 5YO mare Tip The Wink (Stravinsky-Kape Dancer, by Kaapstad) notched her 2nd successive stakes-win in a fortnight with victory by a neck in the NZ$45,000 Listed Fairdale/Goodwood Studs Flying Handicap (1400m) at Awapuni. Tip The Wink (ridden by Mark Du Plessis for trainer Mike Breslin) defeated 8YO gelding Nitty Gritty (Bahhare-Flying Chance, by Centaine) & favoured 6YO gelding O'Cartier (Halo-Carinda, by The Jogger). Tip The Wink (a NZ$77,500 yearling at the 2006 NZB Premier Sale at Karaka) now has 6 wins (also including last start's Listed Sakhees Secret MRC Lightning Handicap over 1200m at Trentham on March 20) & 7 placings from 17 starts for NZ$118,415 earnings.
