Bluebloods : NZ Sires Preview June 2010
Top of the tree is Windsor Park's Volksraad whose son Military Move topped the million-dollar mark when he won the Ellerslie staying feature. Volksraad also made a Gr. 1 mark in Australia when his immaculate daughter Velocitea added the Gr. 1 Goodwood Handicap to her Gr. 3 How Now and Belmaine Stakes successes. Waikato Stud's Pins is number two on the hit parade with the history-making Katie Lee his chief earner. She rewrote the record book in the spring with her defeat of the colts and gelding in the NZ 2000 Guineas followed by her NZ 1000 Guineas victory. The champion Zabeel, whose son Zavite returned to his homeland to claim the Auckland Cup, is third on the list and the top New Zealand entry on the combined table with Australia. He has again struck at the top level in Australia with Jessicabeel (Sydney Cup), Zabrasive (Rosehill Guineas) and Efficient (Turnbull Stakes) scoring brilliant victories. Further afield, Pins continues to be a constant source of success in Singapore where he sits fourth on the premiership. His best representative there has been the Gr. 3 Fortune Bowl winner Goldschatz, who is bred on that potent Pins-Centaine cross. A major part of the Goldschatz success story is his expatriate Kiwi trainer Stephen Gray, who like Laurie Laxon, has done so well in Singapore. Pins' barn-mate O'Reilly has championship sire status in Hong Kong and is currently a clear third on the general list there. Waikato Stud have been Australasia's leading source of Gr. 1 success in the last decade and recently added to their record courtesy of Metal Bender. The Matamata farm graduate capped his comeback from injury with victory in the Doomben Cup - and again under the guidance of New Zealander Chris Waller.
