Hasstobegood, the most recent of our acquisitions, tuned up beautifully for the $1M (NZD) Karaka Million when finishing 2nd over 1500m at Ellerslie on Sunday.
After taking 200m to find her stride, she was afforded a run just behind the leaders. Straightening up she was slightly hampered when angling off the heels of eventual winner Pimlico, who led throughout to score by a length and a half. Her slick 22.5 seconds for the last 400m was a positive indicator for her to now step out to the 1600m of the Karaka Million.
The effort on Sunday delighted both her jockey Vinny Colgan and trainer Roger James. Roger believes the run will bring her on perfectly for the Karaka race.

The purchase of this daughter of leading NZ stallion Per Incanto was on the back of several promising Group performances, close up behind New Zealand’s very best 3yos in Yourdeel, Probabeel and Saturday’s Group 1 winner, Travelling Light. The filly has an exciting future has in store in Group races once she relocates to Australia.
