In Christchurch at Riccarton Park, Haunui Farm shuttler Iffraaj (Zafonic-Pastorale, by Nureyev) added a black-type triumph when 6YO gelding Who Dares Wins (Iffraaj-Wee Tipple, by Centaine) closed strongly down the grandstand side of the course to claim a 1.5-length win for trainers Tony & Lyn Prendergast in the $50,000 Listed Easter Cup (1600m), over 5YO mare Residential & 4YO mare Contessa Vanessa. In a race of many chances right throughout the contest, favoured Contessa Vanessa was close enough if good enough when the field tracked into the straight well off the fence. Residential appeared to have her measure going into the final furlong, but Who Dares Wins had come from the slipstream of the runner-up and rounded them all up in plenty of time. The winner improved his record to 7 wins & 13 placings (including the Gr3 Canterbury Gold Cup & Listed Dunedin Gold Cup) from 47 starts for $193,163 in earnings.
