Wild Child (NZ) Impressive at Tauherenikau

11 October 2018

The Pencarrow racing team celebrated its second winner in as many days when Wild Child (NZ) (Darci Brahma) scored easily in Thursday’s $10,000 NZB Insurance Pearl Series 1000 at Tauherenikau.

Trained by Steven Ramsay and Julia Ritchie and with Rosie Myers in the saddle, the four-year-old mare sat in second place before taking the lead with 600 metres to run.

Wild Child sprinted stylishly from the home turn, winning by two and a half lengths in a fast time of 56.15 seconds for 1000 metres.

From eight raceday appearances, Wild Child has now picked up a win, a placing and more than $8,000 in prizemoney. Thursday’s win also earned her a Level B Pearl bonus of $11,500.

Wild Child was bred by Pencarrow Thoroughbreds Ltd and raced by Sir Peter Vela. She is out of Santangelo (NZ) (Lonhro), who won six races and placed at Group 3 level.

Like Wednesday’s Pencarrow winner Terra Firma (NZ) (Reliable Man), the second dam is the proven black-type producer Lucky Be Lucky (Storm Cat).
