Intransigent Wins Listed Taumarunui Gold Cup
At Taumaranui in New Zealand, Darley's deceased multiple Gr1-winning former shuttler Refuse To Bend (Sadler's Wells-Market Slide, by Gulch) added a stakes success when 6YO gelding Intransigent (Refuse to Bend-Risible, by Pentire) scored by a head for trainer Kirsty Lawrence in the NZ$80,000 Listed Taumarunui Gold Cup (2400m) for 3YOs+, over fellow 6YO geldings Magna Carta (His Royal Highness-Tuckahoe, by Blue Razor) & Noble Warrior (Le Bec Fin-Our Kuini Rose, by Justice Prevails). This was Intransigent's second black-type success and took his record to 8 wins (including the Listed Rotorua Plate) & 13 placings from 50 starts for NZ$216,200 earnings.
