Willie Cazals Wins Gr1 Livamol Classic
At Hastings in New Zealand, dual Gr1-winning former Coolmore shuttler Aussie Rules (Danehill-Last Second, by Alzao) celebrated an elite success when 9YO Irish-bred gelding Willie Cazals (Aussie Rules-Secrete Marina, by Mujadil) scored by a short neck for trainers Lance O'Sullivan & Andrew Scott in the NZ$250,000 Gr1 Gr1 Livamol Classic (2040m) for 3YO+, over 4YO NZ-bred gelding Humidor (Teofilo-Zalika, by Zabeel) & 5YO NZ-bred gelding Hasselhoof (Tavistock-Alpine, by Zabeel). This was the first top-flight victory for Willie Cazals who improved his record to 6 wins (including the Listed Milan Premio Merano) and 9 placings (including the Gr1 Hong Kong Vase) from 25 starts for NZ$1,805,688 earnings.
