Wednesday, 25th January 2017

Hall Of Fame hasn't missed a beat since his Gr1 triumph in the Levin Classic (1600m) at Trentham eleven days ago, reports NZ Racing Desk. "He'll go to the Waikato Guineas and the Avondale Guineas and then on to the Derby," Te Akau Racing principal David Ellis said. Hall Of Fame is currently a $9 chance in the Gr1 Vodafone New Zealand Derby market behind the $5 favourite Sacred Elixir. The $1 million Gr1 New Zealand Derby will be run at Ellerslie on 4 March. By Savabeel from the Galileo mare Around The Clock, Hall Of Fame hails from the famous Leica family of Victoria Derby winners Nothin' Leica Dane and Redding, New Zealand Derby winner Leica Guv, Gr1 Australian Guineas winner Light Fantastic, Australian Derby winner Leica Lover, and Australian Oaks winner Leica Smile.
