Monday, 17th August 2015

At Te Rapa in New Zealand, Longspring Stud's beautifully bred stallion Colombia (Zabeel-Eight Carat, by Pieces Of Eight) added a Group success when 6YO New Zealand-bred gelding Addictive Habit (Colombia-Chasing the Habit, by Sky Chase) scored by 1-length for trainer Lee Somervell in the $100,000 Gr2 Lisa Chittick Foxbridge Plate (1200m) for 3YO+, over 5YO gelding Tomorrowland (Fast 'n' Famous-Needled, by Pins) & 7YO gelding Whosyourmaster (Captain Rio-Peace of Mind, by Wild Rampage). Bred by Hawke's Bay couple Graham and Isabel Roddick, Addictive Habit, who is out of a half-sister to champion Kiwi galloper Rough Habit, took his record to 9 wins (including the Gr2 Coupland's Bakeries Mile & Listed Southbank Insurance Brokers Open Handicap) and 10 placings from 32 starts for $414,132 earnings.
