Tavistock Mating For Vergara

Tuesday, 28th June 2016

Talented mare Vergara (Snippetson x Graces Spirit) will have her final race start in Saturday's Listed Civic Stakes at Rosehill before crossing the Tasman to be covered by Cambridge Stud's sire sensation Tavistock. Formerly trained by Anthony Cummings, Vergara has won 8 of her 33 starts hitherto highlighted by her victory in the Gr3 Epona Stakes in the autumn. She was also placed fourth behind superstar mare Winx in the Gr1 Doncaster Handicap. Vergara - who is out of a half-sister to Gr1 winning sprinter and sire Turffontein and hails from the Betty Box (IRE) family of VRC Derby winner Hit The Roof, Gr1 Railway Handicap winner Alynda, and Gr3 winning sire Fast 'N' Famous - was purchased for $460,000 at last month's Magic Millions National Broodmare Sale. "She runs on Saturday and goes to New Zealand on Monday to be served by Tavistock," new trainer Gerald Ryan told AAP. "I've been happy with her and it would be great if she could win her last start."
