Our King Sway Wins Gr3 Taranaki Cup
At Pukekura in New Zealand, deceased Gr1-winning stallion Shinko King (Fairy King-Rose Of Jericho, by Alleged) added a Group success when 6YO gelding Our King Sway (Shinko King-Yendarra, by Kendara) scored by a long neck for trainer Glenn Old in the $80,000 Gr3 Taranaki Cup (1800m) for 3YO+, over fellow 6YO gelding Overtheriver (Mettre en Jeu-Quality Eyes, by Danzero) & 8YO gelding Cruiser (Captain Rio-Morton Babe, by Orpen). A $5,200 purchase at the 2011 NZ Bloodstock National Weanling Sale from the draft of Century Lodge, Our King Sway improved his record to 4 wins and 8 placings from 26 starts for NZ$104,740 earnings.
