7th NZ winner for Lucky Unicorn

15 Mar 2012

Shantaraam (Lucky Unicorn ex Eagle Feather, by Quest for Fame) became his sire’s seventh individual winner in New Zealand to date when taking out yesterday’s Tokoroa Cosmopolitan Club Maiden at Matamata.


A $100,000 graduate of the 2010 NZB Ready to Run Sale, Shantaraam was having his third start for trainer John Bell.  He was third on debut at Arawa Park at the end of January and fourth last time out at Te Aroha during the middle of February.


Shantaraam is part of the initial crop of Lucky Unicorn which also includes Capital Diamond, a filly with five Group Race placings to date and a leading contender for Saturday’s $300,000 Wellfield New Zealand Oaks-Gr.1 at Trentham Gardens.
