As the racing season draws to a close Curraghmore graduates are maintaining their winning momentum posting three wins over three days.
First off the mark was Easy Habit who won at Ascot Park on Friday in his first start since September last year.
The four-year-old son of Super Easy won under a bold front running ride from Terry Mosely and was never challenged going on to win by 3/4 of a length.
On Saturday Penelope Cruise delivered winning the Flipp Transport / Transag Centre Ltd 1550 at Awapuni on Saturday.
The Alan Sharrock-trained mare was second up this preparation benefited from a rails-hugging ride from 2019/2020 jockey premiership winner Lisa Allpress to win by 2 3/4 lengths.
Allpress posted a winning double at Awapuni which saw TAB bookmakers put up the white flag and pay out on Allpress winning the National Jockeys’ premiership.
Bred by Tic Toc Thoroughbreds Ltd, Penelope Cruise was sold out of Curraghmore's 2017 New Zealand Bloodstock for $10,000 and has now won two of her nine starts for over $22,000 in stakes.
The third win came the way of Hatrick Boys who appreciated the soft track conditions at Timaru to take out the rating 83 1600m contest in his first start for more than twelve months.
“Hatrick Boys trialled superbly at Rangiora on Tuesday so we were confident of a big race,” trainer Terry Rae said.
“He has had a few issues and hiccups and doesn’t like the firm tracks so he only had three starts in his last campaign.
“He has a lot of talent and will be even more suited by getting over further so the 1600m was just perfect for him fresh-up."
Bred by Martha's Kitchen Ltd, Hatrick Boys was sold out of Curraghmore's 2016 New Zealand Bloodstock Select draft.
The three wins took Curraghmore's tally up to 89 for the season.
