Sacha latest SW for Keeper

26 Jun 2010

Sacha (Keeper ex Viva Romance  by Machiavellian) broke through for black type success in yesterday’s Tauranga Classic-LR at Gate Pa.


It was the seventh and most important win for the Lisa Latta-trained mare who has now earned close to $110,000 in prizemoney.


Sacha continues what has been an outstanding season for her sire Keeper.  The Cambridge Stud son of Danehill has sired seven individual black type winners so far this season.


The tally includes the respective Oaks winners Keep the Peace (NZ Oaks-Gr.1) and Miss Keepsake (Queensland Oaks-Gr.1).  Group Three winners for Keeper this season have been Keepin’ the Dream (Hawkesbury Cup-Gr.3 and Scone Cup-LR), St Germaine (Gold Trail Stakes-Gr.3) and Special Days (Cententary Vase-HKG3).


Sacha is one of two domestic Listed Race winners for Keeper this season, the other being The Beekeeper, who won the Southland Guineas-LR.
