Flying Blue (ridden by Douglas Whyte for Australian trainer John Size) defeated 6YO gelding Thumbs Up (Shinko King-Regelle, by Expoding Prospect) & 7YO gelding Sight Winner (Faltaat-Kinjinette, by Kinjite). Flying Blue (a NZ$80,000 yearling at the 2008 NZB Select Sale at Karaka) took his record to 4 wins & 3 runners-up from 7 starts.
