Platinum Witness Sold

Wednesday, 18th May 2016

Gr1 winning Kiwi mare Platinum Witness  (California Dane-Chartreuse, by St. Petersburg) has been sold as a broodmare prospect, reports NZ Racing Desk. "She's been bought by Japanese interests and she's gone to Arrowfield Stud in Australia," said Neville McAlister, who raced the daughter of California Dane with Lincoln Farms. A winner of 5 of her 22 starts, Platinum Witness won last season's Gr1 NZ 1000 Guineas and was runner-up in the Gr1 New Zealand Oaks which earned her the 2015 New Zealand Bloodstock Filly of the Year title. However, she was unable to recapture her best form with two unplaced efforts in the autumn. "She was disappointing, but she had nothing more to prove and as a young mare she is a top broodmare prospect," trainer Lisa Latta said.
