Race 7 NZ Sires Stakes Sophomore Classic (Listed) Mobile 1950m
#9 Classie Brigade
Had won four in a row before he ran into superhorse Lazarus at the Group 2 Flying Stakes and again in the Group 1 NZ Derby. Last week he was still in Group company (Group 2) in the Southern Supremacy Stakes Final when a close second to Heaven Rocks as favourite. This horse is absolutely flying and despite having the outside draw looks hard to beat.
Race 8 NZ Sires Stakes Series No.33 Final (Group 1) Mobile 1950m
#3 Pacing Major
Looks a two horse race with the Mark Purdon stablemates likely to dominate again. Pacing Major and More The Better look the ones here but we are going with the former courtesy of the better barrier draw compared to last time. It’s most likely Natalie Rasmussen will be leading and then hand up to the stablemate allowing it to take full advantage of the sprintlane.
