Hinemoa Wins NZ AG & Turf Sprint
Gr1-winning NZ Haunui Farm shuttler & 2002 French Champion 2YO Elusive City (Elusive Quality-Star Of Paris, by Dayjur) added a black-type success (& 9th individual stakes-winner world-wide) when 5YO mare Hinemoa (Elusive City-Titania, by Grosvenor) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the NZ$45,000 Listed AG & Turf Sprint (1400m) at Te Rapa. Hinemoa (ridden by Craig Grylls for trainers Mike Moroney & Andrew Clarken) scored by a nose from 6YO mare Her Royal Highness (Volksraad-Grand Princess, by Last Tycoon) with a further long-head to favoured 4YO mare Fazzle (Johar-Eftee One, by Volksraad). Hinemoa now has 3 wins & 5 placings from 11 starts for NZ$46,700 earnings.
