- KHIMAR WAR defeated stablemate VASILIKI in the Punters Challenge 4 April Rating 72 and SUCCOSO SEGRETO (pictured) under a daring ride won the days staying maiden race to complete the Robinson trio of winners.
- All three were ridden by Wanganui jockey Lisa Allpress to make her the leading rider on the day with Chris Johnson securing two more winners in his quest to overhaul David Walsh’s all-time winning total in New Zealand.
- Steven Marsh’s satellite stable prepared EFFERVESCENT to take out the Lachie & Cooper Harrington Rating 65 in the hands of Brett Murray.
- Heavyweight jockey Brandon Morgenrood showcased his skills in getting CARNABY STREET home at odds of 38/1 in the Speights Maiden over the metric mile for local trainers Danny Champion and Kezia Murphy who also own the gelding.
