True Valour Wins NZ Listed Levin Stakes
In the day's supporting feature at Otaki, unfancied 6YO gelding True Valour (Honour and Glory-Paklani Princess, by Last Tycoon) caused a boilover when scraping home by a neck in the NZ$55,000 Listed Levin Stakes (1200m). Ridden by apprentice Tomohiro Sasada for trainer H Mathews, True Valour defeated 7YO gelding Bulginbaah (Starjo-Lady Tristimus, by Tristimus) & 5YO gelding Pinmdown (Pins-Mi Babe, by Mi Preferido). A NZ$10,000 yearling at the 2003 NZB Select Colts Sale at Karaka, True Valour's record is 6 wins & 8 placings from 32 starts.
