Residential too good once again
Pins five-year-old Residential will be a valuable addition to the Waikato Stud broodmare band when her time comes.
She is a multiple stakes winner and at Wingatui on Saturday took her career winning tally to eight.
Trained by John and Karen Parsons, the mare made short work of her open class rivals in the hands of Tina Comignaghi.
The dual Listed winner of the Southland Guineas and NZB Insurance Stakes at three, Residential is a daughter of Metropolitan.
The Elusive City mare was herself a two-time black-type winner and all three of her foals to race have been successful.
They hail from the Group One winning family of Ajasco, Silver Liner, Petrava and Hoeberg.
