At Ellerslie in New Zealand, Westbury Stud's Gr1 Oakleigh Plate-winning stallion Swiss Ace (Secret Savings-Rapid Serve, by Carson City) added a Group success when 3YO colt Passing Shot (Swiss Ace-Derrydane, by Danehill) scored by a neck for trainer Stephen McKee in the NZ$70,000 Gr3 Mr Tiz Trophy (1200m) for 3YOs, over 3YO filly Red Striker (Red Giant-Megara, by Encosta de Lago) & 3YO gelding Mighty Maverick (Snitzel-Thunder Belle, by Thunder Gulch). This was the first stakes victory for Passing Shot who took his record to 5 wins and 2 placings from 14 starts for NZ$137,200 earnings. Passing Shot is owned by Go Racing who purchased him for NZ$50,000 at the 2013 NZ Bloodstock Select Yearling Sale from the draft of Westbury Stud.
