Gr1 Winner Costa Viva Resumes In Kiwi Gr3
At Hawera in New Zealand tomorrow, trainer Jason Bridgman saddles 2014 NZB Filly Of The Year when she resumes from her spell, reports NZ Racing Desk. Having had a decent freshen up after her Queensland campaign, Gr1 NZ 1,000 Guineas winner Costa Viva makes her Spring debut in the Gr3 Rich Hill Stud Taranaki Breeders' Stakes (1400m) where she will have to overcome a wide draw when tackling the likes of in-form mare I Do under weight-for-age conditions in her home province. "Her work leading up to this has been very good and she's had a trial and racecourse gallop under her belt," commented Bridgman. "She's ready to go a good race first-up and 1400m is ideal for her resuming."
