Savabeel 4YO loving new environment
Waikato Stud graduate Wairere Falls is loving life in Sydney and added to his record in fine style on the Kensington track at Randwick this afternoon.
The well-related Savabeel 4-year-old picked up a maiden success and three placings during his time at the Victorian arm of Chris Waller’s operation and since his move to Rosehill has really blossomed.
Wairere Falls came from last to win at Hawkesbury before producing an identical performance today with jockey Tommy Berry giving the gelding plenty of time to find his feet before powering to an emphatic victory.
“He’s a lovely horse and got a beautiful style about him. Since we’ve ridden him quietly he’s showed a good turn of foot and it was pretty soft in the end,” Berry said. He’s definitely up to Saturday company and more comfortable on top of the ground.”
Wairere Falls was bought out of Waikato Stud’s draft at New Zealand Bloodstock’s National Yearling Sale by Go Racing for $280,000.
He is a half-brother to the four-time Group 1 winner and late sire Sacred Falls with their dam Iguazu’s Girl a half-sister to the G3 Thoroughbred Club S. winner Splashing Out. She is the dam of the Group 2 winners Splurge and Shopaholic.
