Second Gr.2 win for Keeper mare

1 Jan 2012

The Lisa Latta-trained Platinum Princess (Keeper ex Merle Park, by Machiavellian) is now a dual Group Two winner, adding yesterday’s Rich Hill Mile at Ellerslie to the CJC Coupland’s Bakeries Mile won last November.


Bred by Dick Karreman’s The Oaks Stud in Cambridge, Platinum Princess was an $115,000 buy at the 2008 Karaka Select Sale and has now won 8 races, ranging from 1400m to 2050m.


There is an excellent offering of yearlings by Keeper at the upcoming New Zealand Bloodstock Karaka Yearling Sales Series commencing 30 January.  Keeper has 15 yearlings at the Premier Session (7 offered by Cambridge Stud) and a further 38 at the Select Session (8 from the Cambridge Stud consignment).
