At Hastings in New Zealand, Gr1-winning NZ Haunui Farm shuttler Elusive City (Elusive Quality-Star Of Paris, by Dayjur) added a Gr1 triumph when 5YO mare Xanadu (Elusive City-Forest Dream, by Forest Glow) scored by 1.75-lengths for trainers Ken & Bev Kelso in the NZ$200,000 Gr1 Windsor Park Plate (1600m) for 3YOs+, over 9YO gelding Mufhasa (Pentire-Sheila Cheval, by Mi Preferido) & 5YO gelding Nashville (Darci Brahma-Royal Kiss, by Royal Academy).
