Keeper is currently the joint-leader for individual winners in New Zealand so far this season, with 7 already chalked up during the first month of racing.


His latest winner came yesterday at Te Teko when Soirette (Keeper ex Dana Zeel, by Danasinga) won a 1400m Maiden for trainer Shaune Ritchie.


Keeper is second on the list for wins and third on the Stallion Premiership for earnings so far this season.


A Group One-winning son of Danehill, Keeper is consistently in the top ten of New Zealand stallions on the domestic premiership, evidenced by the following snapshot
