Tuesday, 8th June 2010

In New Zealand, Stoney Bridge Stud's Gr1-winning Shadwell shuttle sire Ekraar (Red Ransom-Sacahuista, by Raja Baba) added a juvenile black-type success when front-running daughter Extra Explosive (Ekraar-Explosive, by Exploding Prospect) scored a 1.75-lengths victory against the males in yesterday's NZ$45,000 Listed Castletown Stakes (1200m) for 2YOs at Foxton. Extra Explosive (ridden by David Walsh for trainer Andrew Scott) defeated fast-finishing Australian-bred filly Pooka's Sister (Tobougg-The Banchee, by O'Reilly) & favoured fellow filly Sans Souci (Pins-Buckling, by Redoute's Choice). Extra Explosive now has 2 wins & a runner-up from 4 starts for NZ$30,575 earnings.
