Lincoln Blue Wins Listed 3YO Salver

Monday, 12th December 2016

At Ellerslie in New Zealand on Sunday, Waikato Stud's Cox Plate winning stallion Savabeel (Zabeel-Savannah Success, by Success Express) added a black-type success when 3YO colt Lincoln Blue (Savabeel-Prickle, by Pins) scored by 1.25 lengths for trainer Lisa Latta in the NZ$50,000 Listed 3YO Salver (2100m) for 3YOs, over fellow 3YO colt Redeem The Dream (Nadeem-Knocknacrea, by Green Desert) & 3YO gelding Smiling Touch (O'Reilly-Salkantay, by Zabeel). This was consecutive stakes victories for Lincoln Blue who improved his record to 3 wins (including the Gr3 Lucia Valentina Wellington Stakes) and 4 placings from 8 starts for NZ$86,600 earnings. Lincoln Blue, who was purchased by Lisa Latta Racing Stables for $220,000 at the 2015 NZ Bloodstock Premier Yearling Sale, is a brother to Gr1 Queensland Derby winner Brambles and a direct descendant of stakes-winning mare Lady Aloof, dam of champion filly Slight Chance (Centaine). Slight Chance was a winner of six Gr1 races including the VRC Oaks, Queensland Oaks and Winfield Classic (now known as the Coolmore Classic). Waikato Stud will offer a full brother to Lincoln Blue (Lot 349) at the 2017 NZ Bloodstock Premier Sale at Karaka.
