Wind Shear Wins Auckland RC Handicap

Tuesday, 27th April 2010

Arrowfield Stud stallion & former Champion Australian Sire Flying Spur (Danehill-Rolls, by Mr Prospector) added a black-type success (& 74th individual stakes-winner) when 5YO gelding Wind Shear (Flying Spur-Kajar, by Quest For Fame) scored a 1.75-lengths victory in the $125,000 Listed Auckland Racing Club Handicap (1600m) at Flemington. Wind Shear (ridden by Stephen Baster for trainer Dale Sutton) defeated top-weighted 4YO entire Excelltastic (Exceed And Excel-Fantail, by Lear Fan) & 6YO gelding Delayedreaction (Postponed-Arousing, by Kashani). Wind Shear (a $50,000 yearling consigned by Brooklyn Lodge at the 2006 Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale) now has 4 wins & 7 placings (including 2008’s Magic Millions Trophy over 1400m at the Gold Coast & 2007’s Gr2 Sandown Guineas over 1600m) from 36 starts for $380,865 earnings.
