Cambridge Stud colours to the fore

6 Feb 2018

Palmerston North trainer Kevin Gray continues to enjoy a successful association with champion breeder Sir Patrick Hogan.  

They feature in the ownership of the Gr.3 Wellington Stakes (1600m) placegetter Divine Power, who overcame a three-wide run to win the Kuripuni Sports Bar 3YO 1000m at Tauherenikau on Tuesday.

“A half-brother sold at the sales the other day for $230,000 so I’m very grateful to have this filly off Sir Patrick. I also bought Copper Belt off him many years ago,” Gray said.

Copper Belt won 22 races, including two at Group One level and a further 10 stakes successes.

Sir Patrick’s colours were also in the winners’ circle at Te Rapa where the Zabeel mare Lovelight was successful in the Risk Management Group Handicap (2100m).

“We’ll go to the Auckland Cup meeting with her, what she runs in I don’t know yet, and we’ll probably look for a race somewhere before that,” said Peter Williams, who trains with his wife Dawn. - NZ Racing Desk
