Wellington Cup Target For Savaria
New Zealand Oaks winner Savaria (Savabeel-Amathea, by O'Reilly) has been back in work at trainer Roydon Bergerson's stable for a week, reports NZ Racing Desk. The 4YO added the Manawatu Summer Cup to her record on Boxing Day and was subsequently sixth in the Gr1 New Zealand Stakes at Ellerslie. She was then spelled after a strong-finishing third in the Listed Hawke's Bay Gold Cup on 16 April. "We'll just see what the weather does; she's okay on a dead track, but not anything worse," Bergerson said. "Her main goal will probably be the Wellington Cup." The Gr2 Wellington Cup (3200m) will be run at Trentham in January.
