Filly Books Eight Carat Start

Friday, 16th December 2016

Galloping Gerte (Align-Miss Reset, by Reset) has delivered on her promise and she will chase black-type at her next appearance, reports NZ Racing Desk. "She'll go to Ellerslie on Boxing Day for the Eight Carat Classic," trainer Brian McKeagg said. The Align filly confirmed her berth in the Gr2 feature when she was successful at Matamata on Wednesday. She had also won at her previous appearance at Te Aroha. A winner of 2 of her 4 starts, Galloping Gerte hails from the esteemed family of legendary broodmare Eight Carat, whom she counts as her sixth dam. Members include recently deceased 10-time Gr1 and Australian Horse of the Year Octagonal, his freakishly talented brother Mouawad, Kaapstad, Diamond Lover, Marquise, Viscount, Tristalove, Shower Of Roses, Viking Ruler, Don Eduardo, Gr1 winning siblings Bonanova, Fraternity and Telesto, as well as exciting young stallion prospects Shooting To Win and Deep Field.
