Another G1 Performer for Almanzor

Another G1 Performer for Almanzor14 Nov 2022

Blue Solitaire did her connections proud when she finished a game third in the G1 New Zealand 1000 Guineas at Riccarton.

The daughter of Almanzor settled in fourth spot on the outer under rider Daniel Stackhouse and she stuck gamely to her task in the run home to become Almanzor’s third top-flight Southern Hemisphere representative.

Blue Solitaire is trained by Shane Kennedy and Anna Furlong for breeder and owner Kevin Hickman and has made sound progress this preparation after breaking her maiden last month.

His son Manzoice was successful in the G1 VRC Derby during the Flemington spring carnival while dual stakes winner Dynastic finished runner-up in last season’s G1 Sistema Stakes.

Andalus, King’s Crossing and Virtuous Circle are also black type-performed sons of Almanzor.
