No trouble for Noverre


Expensive colt Noverre had no trouble posting the first winning strike of his fledgling career at Wanganui this afternoon.

The Waikato Stud-bred and sold colt was sent out at short odds in the 2-year-old event and the Jamie Richards-trained youngster scooted clear to score easily in the hands of Opie Bosson.

Runner-up on debut in his only other appearance, Noverre is raced by the Te Akau 2020 Stallion Breeding Syndicate and holds a nomination for the G1 Courtesy Ford Manawatu Aires’ Produce S.

Noverre was the third highest-priced lot during the Book 1 session at New Zealand Bloodstock’s National Yearling Sale when he was purchased by David Ellis out of Waikato Stud’s draft for $800,000.

The son of Savabeel is the first to race for the Rip Van Winkle mare Magic Dancer, a smart performer who won the G3 Taranaki 2YO Classic.

She is a half-sister to Manten, successful on nine occasions and runner-up in the G1 Manawatu Sires’ Produce S. They are out of the two-time Listed winner Dazzling Belle and also appearing on the pedigree page is the G3 Frank Packer Plate winner Kinane (NZ) (Reliable Man {GB})
