Norzita Wins Gr1 Vinery Stud Stakes
In the opening Gr1 of 5 Gr1 events at Rosehill Gardens, Windsor Park's ill-fated Gr1-winning stallion Thorn Park (Spinning World-Joy, by Bluebird) celebrated a Gr1 triumph when favoured filly Norzita (Thorn Park-Visique, by Quest for Fame) scored by 0.4-length for trainer Bart Cummings in the $405,000 Gr1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m), over fellow fillies Longport (Casino Prince-Ocean Bridge, by Dolphin Street) & Habibi (Ekraar-Danny Holiday, by Danasinga). Norzita (a NZ$200,000 yearling at the 2011 NZB Premier Sale at Karaka) took her record to 4 wins (also including the Gr1 Flight Stakes at Randwick over 1600m) & 4 placings (including the Gr1 Coolmore Classic) from 10 starts for $765,900 earnings.
