Wahid Wins NZ Waikato Guineas

Monday, 6th February 2006

Former Haunui Stud shuttler Almutawakel (Machiavellian-Elfaslah, by Green Desert) added a group success when top gelding Wahid (Almutawakel-Rory's Helen, by Rory's Jester) won the NZ$50,000 Gr3 Waikato Guineas (2000m) for 3YOs at Te Rapa. Wahid (ridden by Michael Coleman for trainer Allan Sharrock) defeated fellow geldings Mr Dane (Danske-Bay Doll, by Otehi Bay) & Charliehorse (Bahhare-Rebus, by Truly Vain). Wahid (a NZ$51,000 yearling at the 2004 NZB Select Sale at Karaka) was the 3rd highest-rated juvenile in NZ last season; his half-dozen victories also include the Gr1 Levin Classic over 1600m at Otaki in November (plus 2 Gr1 placings last season).
