Debt Collector Wins Gr1 Kranji Mile
At Kranji racecourse in Singapore, Windsor Park Stud's ill-fated Gr1-winning stallion Thorn Park (Spinning World-Joy, by Bluebird) celebrated an elite success when 4YO NZ-bred gelding Debt Collector (Thorn Park-Prompt Payment, by In the Wings) scored by 0.3 length for trainer Cliff Brown in the first leg of the Singapore Triple Crown Series - the S$700,000 Gr1 Kranji Mile (1600m) for 3YO+ - over 5YO NZ-bred geldings Well Done (Falkirk-Gold Cloud, by Truly Vain) & Majestic Moments (Darci Brahma-In Spain, by Selkirk). Debt Collector went through the Karaka sale ring twice, fetching $30,000 as a yearling before being offered by Prima Park at the 2014 NZB Ready to Run Sale where he was purchased by his trainer Cliff Brown for $120,000. Sunday's win boosted Debt Collector's record to 6 wins (including the Gr1 Singapore Guineas & Gr3 Jumbo Jet Trophy) from 9 starts.
