At Ellerslie in New Zealand, Windsor Park's Gr1 English Derby-winning shuttler Pour Moi (Montjeu-Gwynn, by Darshaan) added a black-type success when 2YO gelding Haussmann (Pour Moi-Lily l'Amour, by Volksraad) overcame a wide run and wet conditions to post his first stakes victory in the $50,000 Listed Great Northern Foal Stakes (1400m) for 2YOs, defeating So Far Sokool & Ohceedee. The talented Haussmann, who cost just $14,000 as a weanling at Karaka in 2016, improved his record to 1 win and 2 placings from 4 starts for NZ$49,750 earnings. Next year's Gr1 New Zealand Derby (2400m) has been mentioned as a possible target for Haussmann. "He didn't really let down in the ground so it was a good effort and we should have some fun with him as a three-year-old," trainer Tony Pike told NZ Racing Desk. "He'll go out now and we'll have him back for some of those better races in the spring. He should get a strong mile and maybe further."
