Kincaple Wins Gr3 Strickland Stakes
At Belmont in Perth, leading NZ-based Rich Hill Stud stallion Pentire (Be My Guest-Gull Nook, by Mill Reef) added a stakes success when 7YO gelding Kincaple (Pentire-Kincaple Lass, by Kaapstad) scored a 0.3-length win for trainer Adam Durrant in the $126,100 Gr3 Strickland Stakes (2000m), over 5YO mare Moonlight Bay (Catbird-Moonfire, by Geiger Counter) & 6YO entire God Has Spoken (Blackfriars-Dolly Will Do, by Rubiton). A NZ$150,000 yearling consigned by Rich Hill Stud at the 2007 NZB National Sale at Karaka, Kincaple took his record to 8 wins (also including 2011's Listed Kalgoorlie Cup) & 10 placings (including 2011's Gr2 CB Cox Stakes & Listed Boulder Cup) from 29 starts for $444,942 earnings. Kincaple was unraced for almost 18 months from the end of 2011.
