Scarlett Lady Wins NZ Manawatu Breeders Stakes
Waikato Stud-based multiple Gr1-winning stallion Savabeel (Zabeel-Savannah Success, by Success Express) added a NZ black-type success when 3YO filly Scarlett Lady (Savabeel-On Call, by Ironclad) scored a 0.75-length victory over her older rivals in the NZ$45,000 weight-for-age Listed Manawatu Breeders Stakes (2000m) for fillies & mares at Awapuni. Scarlett Lady (ridden by James McDonald for trainers Graeme & Debbie Rogerson) defeated 5YO mare Sharp Princess (Pins-She's Snubbed, by O'Reilly) & 4YO mare Prairie Star (High Chaparral-Maryann Jones, by Fasliyev). Scarlett Lady (a NZ$25,000 yearling consigned by Waikato Stud at the 2009 NZ Bloodstock Premier Sale at Karaka) took her record to 3 wins & 2 runners-up from 7 starts for NZ$59,125 earnings.
