Waikato Stud stallion No Excuse Needed (Machiavellian-Nawaiet, by Zilzal) added a NZ black-type quinella (& 12th individual stakes-winner) when 5YO mare No Excuse Maggie (No Excuse Needed-Maggie O'Reilly, by O'Reilly) scored by a short-neck in the NZ$45,000 Listed Matamata Cup (1600m) at Matamata. No Excuse Maggie (ridden by Samantha Spratt for trainer John Bary) defeated 5YO gelding Justanexcuse (No Excuse Needed-Aggressive, by Val Dansant) & 7YO gelding Sircross (Cape Cross-Contra Aid, by Hostage).
