At Ellerslie in New Zealand, Westbury Stud's Gr1 Oakleigh Plate-winning stallion Swiss Ace (Secret Savings-Rapid Serve, by Carson City) added a black-type success when the lightly raced 6YO New Zealand-bred gelding Julius (Swiss Ace-Oh So Royal, by Danzero) broke through for his maiden stakes win in the $70,000 Gr3 Concorde Handicap (1200m) for 3YO+, defeating Romancer & Elusive Treasure. Purchased by John Bell Bloodstock & Racing for $44,000 at the 2013 NZB Select Yearling Sale from the draft of Westbury Stud, the progressive Julius improved his record to 5 wins and 4 placings from 9 starts for NZ$119,150 in earnings.
