At Ellerslie in New Zealand on Boxing Day, former Fairdale Stud and now Goodwood Stud stallion Howbaddouwantit (Rahy-Fair To The Wind, by Nijinsky) added a black-type success when evergreen 8YO gelding Authentic Paddy (Howbaddouwantit-Authentic Cross, by Cape Cross) finally cracked his Gr1 maiden for trainer Lisa Latta in the $280,000 Gr1 Cambridge Stud Zabeel Classic (2000m), 1.3-lengths clear of 5YO mare Lizzie l'Amour (Zabeel-Sabia) & 6YO gelding Volkstok'n'barrell (Tavistock-Volkster, by Volksraad). It was a sweet victory for connections as Authentic Paddy already had two placings in this event among his consistent bridesmaid record in Gr1 company. His 11 wins and 31 placings have now earned his connections $665,395 earnings.
