Stud makes impact far and wide

Ocean Park

Waikato Stud celebrated international success yesterday with four winners in three countries.

The home-bred and owned Tahi scored in Victoria while the Matamata farm was also to the fore in Hong Kong.

Ocean Park three-year-old Lucky Win Win and Goko, a son of the late O’Reilly, triumphed at Sha Tin.

And in Singapore, Savabeel five-year-old Song To The Moon posted his sixth win at Kranji.

Trained at Flemington by Danny O’Brien, Tahi is also by O’Reilly and is out of the Group One winner Glamour Puss.

The four-year-old was returning from a month’s break when successful at Sale for the second win of his six-start career.

Meanwhile, Lucky Win Win posted his breakthrough success in the hands of top Australian jockey Tommy Berry.

A $525,000 Ready to Run Sale purchase, Goko has now won twice in Hong Kong.

He is out of the Exceed And Excel mare Miraculous Miss, also the dam of the multiple stakes winner Avisto.

Song To The Moon, a $230,000 Ready to Run Sale buy, is a son of the French Deputy mare White Mouse.
