Campin Relishing Wyndspelle's Success
Syndicator and bloodstock trader Jen Campin is still on a high following the success of Wyndspelle in last Saturday's Gr2 Darci Brahma Waikato Guineas (2000m), reports NZ Racing Desk. "This is a great result for the people who have come on board with me," Campin said, following the win of the Iffraaj 3YO, in which she is a part-owner and syndicate manager. Joining Campin in the ownership of the talented colt is long-time family friend Neil Randles, from Brisbane, in addition to Shirley and Gary Hanna — along with Shirley's brother John Frew. "Shirley got in touch via my Facebook page and we have become great friends," Campin said. Gr1-placed as a juvenile, Wyndspelle has been plagued by wide barriers and bad luck in running, but put that all behind him when guided to a comfortable victory at Te Rapa by Jason Waddell. The well-related colt has been set on a path towards the $1 million Gr1 New Zealand Derby (2400m) on March 3 by conditioners Donna Logan and Chirs Gibbs and he is rated a $9 chance. Wyndspelle, out of the winning High Chaparral mare Western Star, was purchased by Campin in conjunction with bloodstock agent Phill Cataldo for $75,000 at the 2015 New Zealand Bloodstock Select Yearling Sale.
