In New Zealand, former Trelawney Stud shuttler Van Nistelrooy (Storm Cat-Halory, by Halo) added a group success when 5YO mare Boundless (Van Nistelrooy-Nothing Less, by Star Way) scored a 0.75-length victory in the NZ$70,000 Gr3 Hawke’s Bay Gold Cup (2200m) at Hastings. Boundless (ridden by Leith Innes for trainer Stephen McKee) defeated 8YO gelding Manonamission (Kilimanjaro-Arctic Life, by Arctic Tern) & 5YO gelding Royal Jazz (Postponed-Jazz n Along, by St Hilarion).
