At Ellerslie in New Zealand, Cambridge Stud's dual Gr1-winning stallion Tavistock (Montjeu-Upstage, by Quest For Fame) added a Group race success when richly talented 5YO New Zealand-bred gelding Hiflyer (Tavistock-Lady Firebird, by Stravinsky) overcame trouble in running to burst clear late for an impressive win in the $70,000 Gr3 Eagle Technology Stakes (1600m) for 3YO+, defeating Splurge & Volkstok'n'barrell. Hiflyer improved his record to 8 wins (including the Gr3 Thomson Handicap) and 7 placings (including the Gr2 Easter Handicap) from 18 starts for NZ$236,460 in earnings. Bred and part-owned by Sir Patrick and Lady Hogan, Hiflyer is out of the Stravinsky mare Lady Firebird and hails from the outstanding female family of champion Australian racehorse Might And Power and 4-time Gr1 winning filly Mosheen.
