Savvy Nature Wins Gr2 Mitchelton Wines Vase
Also at Moonee Valley, Waikato Stud's Cox Plate winning stallion Savabeel (Zabeel-Savannah Success, by Success Express) added a group success when 3YO gelding Savvy Nature (Savabeel-Generous Nature, by Carnegie) scored by 3-lengths for trainer John O'Shea in the $220,000 Gr2 Mitchelton Wines Vase (2040m) for 3YOs, over fellow 3YO gelding All Rigged Up (Econsul-Lady Girona, by Giant's Causeway) & 3YO colt Pinstripe Lane (Pins-Singasong, by Danasinga). Savvy Nature showed he will be tough to beat in next Saturday's VRC Derby when taking his record 3 wins (including the Gr3 Spring Stakes at Newcastle) & 4 placings (including the Gr1 Spring Champion Stakes & Gr3 Gloaming Stakes) from 7 starts for $346,150 earnings.
