12 October 2018
Beautifully bred mare Siren Call (NZ) (New Approach) completed a treble for the Pencarrow Racing team this week when she won the $10,000 Liquourland Masterton 1400 at Tauherenikau on Thursday.
Ridden by Rosie Myers for trainers Steven Ramsay and Julia Ritchie, Siren Call trailed the early leaders before switching to the outside to make her run. The five-year-old stretched out stylishly in the last 150 metres, taking the lead and winning by a length.
Siren Call has now had eight starts for two wins, two placings and $16,300 in prizemoney.
Thursday’s win followed a victory at Taupo by Terra Firma (NZ) (Reliable Man), and a win earlier on the Tauherenikau programme by Wild Child (NZ) (Darci Brahma).
Siren Call was bred by Pencarrow Thoroughbreds Ltd and is raced by Sir Peter Vela.
Her sire New Approach (Galileo) won the Epsom Derby and has sired 40 stakes winners including the Derby winner Masar and 2000 Guineas winner Dawn Approach. Dam Banchee (NZ) (Oratorio) is a half-sister to the multiple Group 1 winner Katie Lee (Pins) and from the family of Group 1 winner Gee I Jane (NZ) (Jahafil).Carrying Pencarrow’s blue and white hoops, Banchee won six races including the Group 1 Diamond Stakes, Group 2 Matamata Breeders’ Stakes and the race now known as the Karaka Million 3YO Classic. Siren Call is her first foal to race.
