Sofia Rosa Wins Gr3 Lowland Stakes

Thursday, 3rd March 2016

At Hastings in New Zealand yesterday, Westbury Stud shuttle stallion Makfi (Dubawi-Dhelaal, by Green Desert) added a Group success when talented filly Sofia Rosa (Makfi-Bislieri, by Encosta de Lago) scored by 4.3-lengths for trainer Stephen Marsh in the NZ$70,000 Gr3 Lowland Stakes (2100m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies Strada Cavallo (Alamos-Abenroad, by Danroad) & Amazing Lady (O'Reilly-J'Lo, by Unbridled's Song). The race forms part of the prestigious annual NZB Fillies Series. Sofia Rosa, a NZ$65,000 purchase by Bruce Perry Bloodstock at the 2014 NZ Bloodstock Select Yearling Sale from the draft of Westbury Stud, took her growing record to 4 wins (also including last start's Gr2 Royal Stakes at Ellerslie) & a placing from 8 starts for $128,722 earnings.
