Windborne Wins Listed Canterbury Belle Stakes
At Riccarton Park in New Zealand, The Oaks Stud's 5-time Gr1-winning & 5-time Gr1-placed stallion Darci Brahma (Danehill-Grand Echezeaux, by Zabeel) added a black-type success when 3YO filly Windborne (Darci Brahma-Sweet Dreams Baby, by Van Nistelrooy) scored by 3-lengths for trainers Stephen Autridge & Jamie Richards in the NZ$50,000 Listed NZ Bloodstock Canterbury Belle Stakes (1200m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow 3YO fillies Dezzie's Dream (Coats Choice-Sparkling All Over, by Prized) & Princess Davone (Iffraaj-Nikey Davone, by Bertolini). Raced by the Fortuna Windborne Syndicate, Windborne was purchased for NZ$100,000 by Fortuna Syndications at the 2104 NZ Bloodstock Select Yearling Sale from the draft of Goodwood Stud. Windborne took her record to 3 wins (including the Listed Murdoch Newell Stakes) from 5 starts for NZ$80,125 earnings.
