Fillies Bonus Jackpots To $50,000 For Anzac Day Race
Tuesday, February 17, 2004
FOR FILLIES AT AVONDALE
The third $25,000 fillies jackpot remained intact last Saturday following the win by bonus-ineligible filly Velasco in the hotly contested Gr. 2 Robin, Duke of Bedford Matamata Breeders Stakes.
Mercedes Super Bonus Series participants will now be looking forward to the Listed New Zealand Bloodstock 2YO Fillies Stakes (1200m) at Avondale on the 25th April. Not only will the race carry valuable black type but a rich $50,000 bonus as Saturday's $25,000 bonus rolls over to the fourth and final Fillies Jackpot Bonus Race of the season.
The Listed event was taken out last year by smart filly Pay My Bail (Justice Prevails x Ebony Jane). Minor placegetters in the event were Salsa (O'Reilly x Ungaro) who claimed second and Rapid Kay (Towkay x Racing Waters) who finished in third position.
March will be a busy time for the Mercedes Super Bonus Series with four $10,000 Bonus races to be held at the Waikato, Wellington, Auckland and Manawatu Racing Clubs and the $100,000 NZB Three Year Old Classique that will be held on the 27 March at the Tauranga Racing Club.
