At Arawa Park in Rotorua, Cambridge Stud's Gr1-winning stallion Keeper (Danehill-Nuwirah, by Pleasant Colony) added a black-type success when well-bred 5YO bay mare Wildflower (Keeper-Zygadene, by Zabeel) boosted her broodmare value significantly when landing the $50,000 Listed Jakkalberry Classic (1950m) for 3YO+, defeating Snow Secret & Angel In Bluejeans. Wildflower, who races in the Pencarrow Stud colours of owner Sir Peter Vela, improved her record to 4 wins and 5 placings from 14 starts for NZ$100,425 in earnings. Wildflower's third dam is Champion Irish 2YO and Champion European 3YO Habibti, a half-sister to Sir Patrick Hogan's legendary blue hen Eight Carat.
