Sarajay (

"The colt was born a couple of weeks early but there were no complications," said Sarajay's part-owner Adrian Clark, the executive manager of New Zealand Thoroughbred Marketing.

"He is a bay colt with no white - has thrown to his Dad," Clark said. 

Sarajay was trained by John Sargent at Matamata to register her Group 2 victories in the Travis Stakes at Te Rapa and Gasmate Stakes at Te Rapa. She was also a Group 1 placegetter (fourth) in the Zabeel Classic at Ellerslie which was the final start of her 41-start career which netted nine wins.

Clark and his wife, Sherryl, purchased Sarajay early in 2007 before she had recorded a black-type victory.

"Sarajay changed our lives and I suspect she hasn't stopped giving us thrills just yet," said Adrian Clark.

Sarajay will return to Zabeel at Cambridge Stud this year.
