Cambridge Stud's massive presence in TV3 New Zealand Derby

 
26 Feb 2015

Four of seventeen runners set down to contest Saturday's $750,000 TV3 New Zealand Derby-Gr.1 (2400m) were bred or co-bred by Cambridge Stud.


What's more, no fewer than six of the runners are by Cambridge Stud stallions.


The horses concerned are...

It is shaping as being another huge week for New Zealand's Leading Second Season Sire Tavistock, with no fewer than four Derby runners.  It will come off the back of a week which saw the young stallion sire two new winners, Rising Stock in Australia and Francis Drake on the local front.


Rising Stock (Tavistock ex Wahaha, by Stravinsky) won a Maiden at Warrnambool for trainer Mike Moroney while Francis Drake (Tavistock ex Biosphere, by Encosta de Lago) won at Te Rapa from the Graeme & Debbie Rogerson stable.


Tavistock is currently the sire of 17 individual winners, eight of which are Stakes Performers.
