Waikato Girl (NZ) Impresses at Rosehill
16 Nov 2023
Pencarrow principal Sir Peter Vela was in the winner’s circle as both a breeder and a part-owner on Wednesday when the promising Waikato Girl (NZ) (Savabeel) took out the A$100,000 Precise Air Handicap (1400m) at Rosehill.
The three-year-old filly had finished third on debut over 1300 metres at Kembla Grange on October 28, and the step up to 1400 metres on Wednesday brought the very best out of the up-and-comer.
Ridden by Jason Collett for trainer Michael Freedman, Waikato Girl settled at the back of the six-horse field before launching an irresistible finish down the outside of the home straight to win with ease by a length and three-quarters.
With a win and a placing from her two starts, Waikato Girl has quickly banked A$51,900 for the ownership pairing of Sir Peter Vela and Gandharvi.
