At Hastings in New Zealand, there was somewhat of a boilover when emergency 8YO gelding Close Up (Shinko King-Regelle, by Exploding Prospect) made the most of his opportunity with a 0.2-length victory for trainer Shelley Hale in the $200,000 Gr1 Tarzino Trophy (1400m). In what actually turned out to be a good form guide, last start Gr2 Foxbridge Plate runner-up Close Up turned the tables on Foxbridge conqueror, 6YO mare Underthemoonlight (El Hermano), who finished third. The duo was split by consistent Gr1 winning 6YO mare Aide Memoire (Remind). Close Up now has 10 wins & 6 placings from 29 starts for $307,050 earnings.
