NZ Sire Edenwold Boost From Kentucky Derby Winner
New Zealand's Selwyn River Stud-based stallion Edenwold (Southern Halo-Best Of Friends, by Mining) has received a pre-breeding season boost from the US Gr1 Kentucky Derby victory by Mine That Bird (Birdstone-Mining My Own, by Mining). Selwyn's Glyn Morris told NZ Thoroughbred Marketing: "Edenwold was Canada's Champion 2YO colt in 2005 & Mine That Bird was Canada's Champion 2YO colt in 2008. What's more, both horses trained on as 3YOs to win major races: Edenwold won the Woodbine Queen's Plate & Mine That Bird the Kentucky Derby."
