Fromelles Wins Rotorua Cup

Monday, 14th May 2012

In New Zealand, Waikato Stud-based multiple Gr1-winning stallion Savabeel (Zabeel-Savannah Success, by Success Express) added a group success (& 16th individual stakes-winner – followed by a 17th with Brambles at Doomben in Brisbane later on the same afternoon, reported above in today's news) when 5YO mare Fromelles (Savabeel-Unearthed, by Felix The Cat) scored a 2.25-lengths victory in the NZ$70,000 Gr3 Rotorua Cup (2200m) at Arawa Park. Fromelles (ridden by Lisa Allpress for trainer John Sargent) defeated 5YO gelding Sum Up (Shinko King-Regelle, by Exploding Prospect) & fellow 5YO mare Arcenciel (Black Minnaloushe-Grosvenor's Court, by Grosvenor). Fromelles (passed-in for NZ$37,500 on a NZ$45,000 reserve when consigned by Shelby Park at the NZ Bloodstock Select Yearling Sale at Karaka) took her record to 5 wins & 8 placings from 30 starts for NZ$106,125 earnings.
