Veyron Wins NZ Gr1 Easter Handicap
In New Zealand, Windsor Park Stud's Gr1-winning Australian-bred sire Thorn Park (Spinning World-Joy, by Bluebird) added a Gr1 triumph (& 12th individual stakes-winner) when favoured 5YO gelding Veyron (Thorn Park-Over The Limit, by Centro) scored a 3-lengths victory in the NZ$200,000 Gr1 Easter Handicap (1600m) at Ellerslie in Auckland. Veyron (ridden by Rogan Norvall for trainer Linda Laing) defeated fellow 5YO gelding Fears Nothing (Faltaat-Magical Moment, by Sadler's Wells) & evergreen Sir Slick (Volksraad-Our Miss Opera, by Paris Opera). Veyron took his record to 8 wins & 2 runners-up from 13 starts for NZ$226,100 earnings.
