Juice Wins NZ Rotorua Stakes

Monday, 4th May 2009

NZ Rich Hill Stud's Darley shuttler Bertolini (Danzig-Aquilegia, by Alydar) added a black-type success when favoured 3YO filly Juice (Bertolini-Call Minder, by Christmas Tree) scored a half-length victory over her older rivals in the NZ$60,000 weight-for-age Listed Rotorua Stakes (1400m) for fillies & mares at Te Aroha. Juice (ridden by Michael Walker for trainer John Wheeler) defeated 4YO mare Barinka (Shinko King-Hay Barlu, by Hey Baba Riba) & 5YO mare Artique (Keeper-Stadsmadad, by Kaapstad). Juice (a NZ$20,000 yearling at the 2007 NZB Carnival Sale) now has 4 wins (also including 2008's Gr3 NZB Gold Trail Stakes over 1200m at Hastings & Listed NZB Fillies Stakes over 1200m at Avondale) & 4 placings (including 2008's Gr1 NZB 1000 Guineas over 1600m at Riccarton Park & Listed Great Northern Champagne Stakes over 1600m at Ellerslie) from 15 starts for NZ$295,600 earnings.
