Thorn Prince Wins Listed Taumarunui Gold Cup
At Te Rapa in New Zealand, Windsor Park Stud's ill-fated Gr1-winning stallion Thorn Park (Spinning World-Joy, by Bluebird) added a black-type success when 6YO gelding Thorn Prince (Thorn Park-Shinko Princess, by Shinko King) scored by 4.75-lengths for trainer Fraser Auret in the NZ$65,000 Listed Taumarunui Gold Cup (2100m) for 3YO+, over 5YO gelding Blathwayt (Colombia-Miss Yachtie, by Yachtie) & fellow 6YO gelding Storming The Tower (Storm Creek-Midnight Dip, by O'Reilly). This was the first stakes victory for Thorn Prince who took his record to 9 wins and 9 placings (including the Listed Challenge Stakes) from 30 starts for $153,075 earnings.
