Stud blueblood blooms at Hawkesbury
The regally-bred Grand Bouquet has made a lightning start to her racing career in Australia.
The Waikato Stud graduate won at just the second time of asking with a smart victory at Hawkesbury.
Trained on the track by Kris Lees, Grand Bouquet is a daughter of Savabeel and Daffodil.
