New Zealand Bloodstock Airfreight Stakes Sees Tonic With Winning Formula
24 February 2003
Trained in Riccarton by Peter and Dawn Williams, Tonic is now tied for the lead in the New Zealand Bloodstock Southern Filly of the Year Series with Southerner Flying Coup. Both fillies have 7 points, and with 3 races left in the series there are still plenty of points up for grabs and the opportunity for other fillies to scoop the notable title.
Tonic was purchased at New Zealand Bloodstock's 2001 Select Fillies Sale for $40,000 by Delahunty Farm's Peter & Tim Ryan.
Following the running of the New Zealand Bloodstock Airfreight Stakes the points table for the 2002-03 New Zealand Bloodstock Southern Filly of the Year now stands as follows
Flying Coup 7
Magic Bow 3
Mighty Myrtle 3
Smiling Asset 1

The next race in the series is the New Zealand Bloodstock Insurance Stakes at Otago Racing Club on 30 March 2003.
