Pertab’s celebrations continue

Ocean Park

Matamata horseman Kurtis Pertab’s golden run with his bargain buy Poser continued over 2200
metres at Te Rapa on Saturday.

Pertab has a perfect record with the daughter of Ocean Park, who had broken her maiden at Tauranga over 1600 metres in November in her first appearance from his stable.

Poser then struck again over a middle distance at Rotorua and produced another tenacious display on Saturday afternoon to complete a hat-trick of wins in the hands of regular rider Tegan Newman.

The five-year-old was bred and originally raced by Mary Chittick and had her first start for Pertab, who had broken Poser in, before she joined Matamata trainers Graham Richardson and Rogan Norvall.

She placed once and subsequently relocated to Andrew Carston’s Riccarton stable where she again failed to fire.

Poser was put up for sale via the Gavelhouse platform and Pertab purchased her for $500, which now represents an astute piece of business with more than $33,000 realised from her three outings this preparation.

She is the first winner for the Pins mare Wannabe, who foaled an Ardrossan filly last season, and she is a half-sister to the winner and G3 Sunline Vase placegetter Gold Spice.

Their dam Zoe Spice was successful on five occasions and is out of a half-sister to the G3 Cuddle S.
winner Rhysess.
