Eliza Park chief executive Cameron Croucher enthused: "Eliza Park is delighted to be given the opprtunity to stand such a good looking & talented racehorse as Super Saver. He is represented by a wonderful pedigree: we made a conscious decision to seek an outcross for the coming season & are thrilled to be entrusted with Super Saver on behalf of his owners & the famed Winstar Farm." And WinStar chief executive Elliot Walden added: "We've got every confidence in Super Saver & are very excited about our 1st venture in Australia. He's certainly the right horse!"
