Spellbinder Wins Listed Soliloquy Stakes
At Ellerslie in New Zealand, Waikato Stud's champion sire O'Reilly (Last Tycoon-Courtza, by Pompeii Court) added a stakes success when the aptly named 3YO filly Spellbinder (O'Reilly-Scenic Sprint, by Scenic) scored a breathtaking 6.5-lengths win for trainer Jason Bridgman in the NZ$50,000 Listed Soliloquy Stakes (1400m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies Ruthless Lady (Keeper-Lady Dehere, by Dehere) & Zanotti (Strategic Image-Goody Two Shoes, by Danasinga). The unbeaten Spellbinder won her first stakes victory with contemptuous ease and looked like a special filly when taking her record to 2 wins from 2 starts for NZ$34,375 earnings.
