Kia Ora Koutou Wins Listed Japan Racing Association Trophy

Monday, 12th December 2016

At Ascot racecourse in Perth, West Australia, Scenic Lodge's VRC Derby-winning sire Blackfriars (Danehill-Kensington Gardens, by Grosvenor) added a black-type success when 4YO gelding Kia Ora Koutou (Blackfriars-Kia Ora Miss, by Jeune) drew clear to score a strong 1.25 length win for trainers Geoff Durrant and Jason Miller in the $100,000 Listed Japan Racing Association Trophy (2200m) for 3YO+, over 5YO geldings Star Exhibit (Statue of Liberty-Star Encounter, by Jeune) & Dark Musket (Musket-Oriental Lass, by Faltaat). This was a well deserved maiden stakes victory for the highly talented Kia Ora Koutou who improved his record to 5 wins and 4 placings (including the Gr1 VRC Victoria Derby) from 13 starts for $442,350 earnings.
