Fazza Wins NZ Feilding Gold Cup
In New Zealand, former Berkley Stud stallion I Conquer (Zabeel-Diamond Lover, by Sticks And Stones) added a black-type success when evergreen 9YO gelding Fazza (I Conquer-Sapele, by Gay Apollo) scored a 1-length victory in the NZ$45,000 Listed Feilding Gold Cup (2100m) at Awapuni, to take this race for the 2nd time (having also won in 2009). Fazza (ridden by Buddy Lammas for trainer Jeff Lynds) defeated favoured 5YO gelding Rising Tide (Shinko King-Ballina Wave, by Lord Ballina) & 6YO gelding Beau Dane (Danelove-Miss Akebono, by Gold And Ivory). Fazza now has 9 wins (also including 2009’s Listed Feilding Gold Cup over 2100m at Awapuni) & 10 placings (including February’s Listed TRAC Stakes over 2000m at Matamata & 2010’s Gr2 City Of Auckland Cup over 2400m at Ellerslie) from 53 starts for NZ$173,850 earnings.
