And across the Tasman in New Zealand, US Gr1-winning Darley shuttler & 2007 Gr1 Kentucky Derby runner-up Hard Spun (Danzig-Turkish Tryst, by Turkoman) added a 4th 1st-crop winner in the same afternoon when 2YO colt Hayleys Comet (Hard Spun-Mezaire, by Al Akbar) notched his 1st win over 1200m at Matamata for trainer Andrew Scott. Hayleys Comet was passed-in for NZ$1,000 on a NZ$10,000 reserve when consigned by Willow Tree Farm at the 2011 NZB Select Yearling Sale at Karaka.
