Weekend Wrap Up - 27.08.18

There were only two Curraghmore graduates lining up on Saturday, but both made their efforts count.

It was great to see Theanswermyfriend (High Chaparral) put in a great display of courage to win the last on the card at Moonee Valley.

Trained by Darren Weir, Theanswermyfriend made it two wins from two starts this season when beating home some strong opposition in the Harrolds Handicap (1519m).

The $70,000 New Zealand Bloodstock purchase out of Curraghmore's 2015 draft will hopefully gain a nice win over the Melbourne Carnival.

"The way the track was racing suited that horse. It was a good tough win as we didn't want to die wondering," Weir said.

"I told Mark (Zahra, jockey) to keep stoking it up the whole way. Obviously he was walking the last 50 metres but he had the break.

"The race was there to be won today and he got the job done."

The other Curraghmore representative to step out was Tulip (Pierro) who was having her first start since running unplaced in the Gr.1 UBET Classic (1200m) in May.

The $400,000 New Zealand Bloodstock graduate put in a strong performance to finish second in the Ladbrokes Back Yourself Handicap (1200m) to Merriest who has already had one start this preparation.

The New Zealand Racing Awards were held in Auckland on Sunday night, Gordon Cunningham and Curraghmore would like to congratulate to all the award winners, and long time client Nearco Stud who were a finalist in the Breeder of the Year section.  It was a great evening showcasing the talent that New Zealand racing and breeding has produced.
