Shuka Wins NZ Ray Coupland Stakes

Monday, 17th October 2011

Gr1 Irish 2000 Guineas winner & The Oaks Stud shuttler Bachelor Duke (Miswaki-Gossamer, by Seattle Slew) added a NZ black-type success when gelded son Shuka (Bachelor Duke-Alabama Rose, by Cape Cross) scored by a short-neck in yesterday’s NZ$45,000 Listed Ray Coupland Stakes (1400m) for 3YOs at Ashburton. Shuka (ridden by Hayden Tinsley for trainers Peter & Dawn Williams) defeated favoured colt Rock n Pop (Fastnet Rock-Popsy, by Sir Tristram) & fellow gelding Bulwer Bay (Testa Rossa-Petite Oiseau, by Ladoni). Shuka (a NZ$20,000 yearling consigned by The Oaks at the 2010 NZ Bloodstock Select Sale at Karaka) now has 3 wins (also including January’s Gr2 Wakefield Challenge Stakes over 1200m at Trentham) & a placing from 7 starts for NZ$95,425 earnings.
