Waterford Wins Listed Counties Bowl
At Pukekohe in New Zealand, The Oaks Stud's 5-time Gr1-winning & 5-time Gr1-placed stallion Darci Brahma (Danehill-Grand Echezeaux, by Zabeel) added a black-type success when 4YO mare Waterford (Darci Brahma-Crystal Hailey, by Greinton) scored by 4.1-lengths for trainers Tony Pike & Mark Donoghue in the NZ$50,000 Listed Counties Bowl (1100m) for 3YO+, over 5YO entire Civics Rock (Civics-Jahan, by Al Akbar) & 5YO mare The Filly (Ishiguru-Bayline Beauty, by Soviet Star). This was Waterford's first stakes victory and took her record to 3 wins & 5 placings (inlcuding the Gr1 New Zealand 1,000 Guineas, Gr3 Hawke's Bay Gold Trail Stakes & Listed ARC Champagne Stakes) from 12 starts for NZ$114,091 earnings. Consigned by Longlands Stud, Waterford was passed in for NZ$75,000 at the 2011 NZB Premier Yearling Sale.
