At Te Rapa in New Zealand, 6YO mare Underthemoonlight (El Herman-Midnight Dip, by O'Reilly) clocked up her third career stakes victory when winning with almost a length to spare in driving rain from Close Up and Kawi in the $100,000 Gr2 Lisa Chittick Foxbridge Plate (1200m) for fillies and mares. Underthemoonlight's victory took her record to 5 wins (including last start's Listed Tauranga Classic & Gr3 Taranaki Breeders Stakes) and 11 placings (including the Gr3 Rotorua Stakes) from 22 starts for NZ$250,050 in earnings. Trained by Karyn McQuade for owners that include her husband and breeder Hamish, Underthemoonlight looks a genuine Gr1 prospect in the Spring, with NZTM reporting that prior to Saturday the owner-breeder snapped up $26 on offer about Underthemoonlight's prospects in the forthcoming Gr1 Tarzino Stakes.
