Well-Bred Filly Defies Odds

Friday, 26th January 2018

Impressive debut winner Matauri raced up to expectations at Avondale on Wednesday despite being ignored in the betting, reports NZ Racing Desk. The daughter of Cox Plate winner Ocean Park and Gr1-winning Kiwi mare Calveen slipped under punters' guards when she saluted at odds of 28-1. "She's a promising filly and we rate her quite highly," co-trainer Murray Baker said. "We thought she would go close. She's well-bred and we couldn't believe the price." A Shooting To Win half-brother to Matauri (Lot 85) will be offered by Haunui Farm at the Book 1 Sale at Karaka on Sunday evening.
