Neversaynever Wins NZ Anzac 1600
Fairdale Stud stallion Howbaddouwantit (Rahy-Fair To The Wind, by Nijinsky) added a NZ black-type success when 5YO mare Neversaynever (Howbaddouwantit-Dress Circle, by Jetball) gained the judge's decision in a 3-way photo-finish to the NZ$45,000 Listed Manawatu Anzac 1600 (1600m) at Awapuni. Neversaynever (ridden by Craig Grylls for trainer John Bary) scored by a nose from fast-finishing fellow 5YO mare Headsup (Thorn Park-Pensar, by Pentire) with a further half-head to another 5YO mare Alagant Satin (Al Akbar-Glowing Satin, by Noble Bijou). Neversaynever (a NZ$14,000 yearling consigned by Fairdale Stud at the 2007 NZ Bloodstock Festival Sale at Karaka) took her record to 6 wins & 7 placings from 25 starts for NZ$62,695 earnings.
