At Ellerslie in New Zealand, Waikato Stud's Cox Plate winning stallion Savabeel (Zabeel-Savannah Success, by Success Express) added a Group success when 6YO mare Diademe (Savabeel-Bling, by O'Reilly) scored by a short neck for trainers Murray Baker & Andrew Forsman in the NZ$70,000 Gr3 Westbury Classic (1400m) for 3YO+ f&m, over fellow 6YO mare Pussy O'Reilly (O'Reilly-Octapussy, by Octagonal) & 5YO mare Atacama (Pentire-lmaviva, by Catbird). This was Diademe's second victory in the Westbury Classic (after winning in 2013) and took her record to 6 wins (including the Gr2 Gr2 Cal Isuzu Stakes & Gr3 Westbury Classic) & 8 placings (including the Gr1 Waikato Sprint, Gr1 New Zealand Thoroughbred Breeders' Stakes, Gr2 RC Cal Isuzu Stakes & Gr3 Glenlogan Park Stakes) from 23 starts for NZ$254,170 earnings.
