Baby Guinness Wins NZ Timpson Sprint
Gr1-winning Cambridge Stud shuttler Stravinsky (Nureyev-Fire The Groom, by Blushing Groom) added a NZ black-type success when 4YO mare Baby Guinness (Stravinsky-J'abeel, by Zabeel) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the NZ$45,000 Listed Timpson Family Trust Sprint (1200m) at Te Rapa in Hamilton. Baby Guinness (ridden by Craig Grylls for trainers Karen Fursdon & Gemma Sliz) scored by a head from 5YO gelding The Hombre (Lucky Owners-Atlanta Belle, by Defensive Play) with a further long-neck to fellow 4YO mare Appiel (Singspiel-New York, by Danzero). Baby Guinness now has 5 wins & 3 placings from 16 starts for NZ$65,900 earnings.
