Procurement Earns Shot At Gr1

Thursday, 26th March 2015

Procurement's last-start second at Wellington has given her connections the confidence to take on elite company with the mare, reports NZ Racing Desk. The Cambridge 4YO was narrowly beaten by The Diamond One in the Gr3 Cuddle Stakes and she will make her next appearance in the Gr1 New Zealand Thoroughbred Breeders' Stakes at Te Aroha on 11 April. "She'll go to Te Aroha and that will be one of the hottest fields you could find, but she was very good at Trentham and she's come through it well," trainer Stephen Marsh said. By O'Reilly out of the Centaine mare Procure, Procurement is a half-sister to Gr2 Reisling Stakes winner Hips Don't Lie (Stravinsky), who in turn is the dam of the promising Gr1 Golden Slipper and Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes placegetter Lake Geneva (Fastnet Rock).
