Makfi Goal For Vespa

Tuesday, 5th May 2015

Gr1-winning Kiwi colt Vespa (Elusive City-Miss Avalon, by Fantastic Light) will chase further top honours during the Hawke's Bay carnival in the spring, reports NZ Racing Desk. "He went out for a spell in great order," trainer Johno Benner said. "He'll be out for a few months and then I'll set him for the Makfi." Vespa, a winner of the Gr1 Diamond Stakes as a juvenile, added the Gr2 Wellington Guineas and the Listed Flying Handicap to his record in the autumn before rounding out his prep with a close second behind Pondarosa Miss in the Gr1 Easter Handicap. "He did us proud and came through that race pretty well," Benner said.
