At Ellerslie in Auckland, New Zealand, Westbury Stud's three-time Gr1-winning shuttle stallion Makfi (Dubawi-Dhelaal, by Green Desert) added a Group success when 3YO New Zealand-bred filly Eleonora (Makfi-Sopra Tutto, by Van Nistelrooy) scored by 0.8-length for trainers Murray Baker & Andrew Forsman in the NZ$70,000 Gr3 Sunline Vase (2100m) for 3YO fillies, over the fillies Dreamcrafter (Mastercraftsman-Dream Lass, by Dream Well) & Dame Margo Fonteyn (High Chaparral-Dancing Forever, by Keeper). A granddaughter of champion racemare Ethereal, Eleonora improved her record to 3 wins (including the Gr3 Ethereal Stakes) and 6 placings (including the Gr1 VRC Oaks & Listed ARC Champagne Stakes) from 10 starts for $253,030 earnings. Eleonora was a NZ$60,000 purchase by Bruce Perry Bloodstock on behalf of owner Lib Petagna at the 2015 NZB National Yearling Sales Series.
