At Trentham in New Zealand, Cambridge Stud's Gr1-winning stallion Keeper (Danehill-Nuwirah, by Pleasant Colony) added a Group success when 5YO mare Bel Sorriso (Keeper-Balbeel, by Zabeel) scored by a long head for trainer Grant Searle in the NZ$70,000 Gr3 Thompson Handicap (1600m) for 3YO+, over 8YO gelding Crusier (Captain Rio-Morton Babe, by Orpen) & fellow 5YO mare Big Dreamer (No Excuse Needed-War Bride, by Jahafil). Bel Sorriso, who was purchased for just $5,000 at the 2013 NZB Select Yearling Sale from the draft of Cambridge Stud, improved her record to 8 wins and 5 placings from 23 starts for NZ$179,985 earnings.
