Gingernuts Supplemented for Derby
The connections of Gingernuts (Iffraaj-Double Elle, by Generous) have decided to pay the $30,000 late entry fee for next month's Gr1 New Zealand Derby, reports NZ Racing Desk. "We're going to run Gingernuts in the Derby, where he'll be ridden by Opie Bosson," Te Akau principal David Ellis said. "Our other runner, Beaumarchais, will be ridden by Michael McNab." The Stephen Autridge and Jamie Richards-trained Gingernuts powered into classic calculations with his victory in Saturday's Gr2 Avondale Guineas, while stable-mate Beaumarchais finished ninth. The $1 million Gr1 New Zealand Derby will be run at Ellerslie on 4 March.
