Brambles Wins Rough Habit Plate

Monday, 14th May 2012

NZ Waikato Stud-based multiple Gr1-winning stallion Savabeel (Zabeel-Savannah Success, by Success Express) added a group success (& 17th individual stakes-winner – following a 16th with Fromelles at Arawa Park in New Zealand earlier on the same afternoon, reported below in today's news) when gelded son Brambles (Savabeel-Prickle, by Pins) gained the decision in a 3-way photo-finish to the $125,000 Gr3 Rough Habit Plate (2000m) for 3YOs at Doomben. Brambles (ridden by Brad Rawiller for trainer Peter Moody) scored by a half-head from fellow gelding Margins (Parameter-Printer's Mistress, by Semipalatinsk) with a further short-head to the filly Poste Restante (Postponed-Little Tee, by Volksraad). Brambles (a $100,000 yearling consigned by Waikato Stud at the 2010 NZB Premier Sale at Karaka) took his record to 3 wins & 4 placings (including last start's Gr3 Gunsynd Classic over 1600m at Eagle Farm on May 2) from 8 starts for $152,238 earnings.
