Maygrove Wins Listed Jakkalberry Classic
At Arawa Park in New Zealand on Saturday, triple Gr1-winning former English Derby victor & Darley shuttler Authorized (Montjeu-Funsie, by Saumarez) added a black-type success when 6YO gelding Maygrove (Authorized-Lady Zhivago, by Zabeel) scored by 1.25 lengths for trainers Murray Baker & Andrew Forsman in the NZ$50,000 Listed Jakkalberry Classic (1950m) for 3YO+, over 6YO Irish-bred gelding Gentil Tonton (Yeats-Champaka, by Caerleon) & 8YO gelding Flyinby (Postponed-Angel on Links, by Palace Music). Maygrove advanced his record to 7 wins (including the Gr2 Awapuni Gold Cup & Gr2 Wellington Cup) and 10 placings (including the Listed Marton Cup) from 36 starts for NZ$325,135 earnings. Maygrove, who descends from the same female line as VRC Oaks and Thousand Guineas winner Tristanagh, was purchased for $110,000 by Wairarapa-based bloodstock agent Bruce Perry on behalf of Wellington businessman Lib Petagna at the 2012 NZB Select Yearling Sale from the draft of Haunui Farm. Maygrove is being aimed at the Gr3 New Zealand Cup at Riccarton on 12 November.
