Three Winners for Stravinsky at Taupo

6 Oct 2010

Former Cambridge Stud shuttler Stravinsky sired three winners at yesterday's Taupo meeting, namely November Rain (4m ex Lady Teruko), Baltika (3f ex Zambuca) and Tsarevich (4g ex Empress Belle).

Stravinsky covered what is likely to be his last Southern Hemisphere book at Cambridge Stud a year ago and the resulting foals are now arriving.

November Rain, an impressive winner of a Rating 90 over 1400 metres yesterday, is a $6 favourite for the 6
th Coupland's Bakeries Mile-Gr.2 (1600m), a $250,000 feature to be staged on the middle day of the NZ Cup Carnival at Riccarton Park next month.

The talented mare is prepared at Pukekohe by Richard Collett.  Her campaign last season included a close second to Keep the Peace (by Keeper) in the New Zealand Oaks-Gr.1 and another second in the Easter Handicap-Gr.1 behind fellow Stravinsky horse Time Keeper.
